AGREEMENT TO MEDIATE

Matter #:
This is an agreement by the parties to participate in this mediation process. I understand that
mediation is a voluntary and confidential process, which we may terminate at any time.
By signing this agreement, I indicate I am aware that information shared in the mediation sessions
and all materials prepared for mediation are confidential. I will not try to force the mediator to produce
documents or to give evidence relating to any mediation session in any court or administrative
proceeding. I understand the mediator will not disclose confidential information provided during the
course of the mediation or testify voluntarily on behalf of any party. I understand the mediator may
find it helpful to meet with each party separately, but the mediator will not reveal what is said by either
of us, without permission.
_______ _______ Initial here if you request the Ombudsman to refer mediation to the Court of
Common Pleas Community Mediation Program.
The Mediator will contact the parties to set a date, time and place for the mediation session and
exchange of documents.
The parties further agree to the following:
1.
No one may attend mediation without permission of all parties and the consent of the Mediator.
2.
The Mediator will not serve as the representative or lawyer for any party. I was encouraged to
consult with a lawyer prior to signing any agreement.
3.
Any party including the Mediator may withdraw from or terminate the mediation at any time.
4.
The Mediator cannot and will not impose an agreement or penalty. Only the parties can reach
a resolution, and I agree to abide by the terms conditions of the agreement.
5.
If we settle the dispute, the Mediator will put the agreement in writing and when signed, it shall
reflect the wishes of each party in resolving the dispute. We intend it to be a contract between the
parties instead of submitting the dispute to the court process. If a party violates the agreement, I
understand either party may seek a remedy through the courts.
6.
The Mediator will report to, or note for the Office of the Ombudsperson that mediation occurred
and whether it was successful.
7.
If I represent a homeowners association, or other corporation, I am authorized by the board to
mediate and make agreements.
