The Mediation Process

Straticare works to lead an organized discussion between family members. The family and mediator meets together so each member can effectively communicate important issues.
A mediator is not a judge and does not make decisions for the family. Likewise, a mediator is not the family’s attorney and does not provide legal advice.
