The Office of the Court Administrator is recruiting, screening, and
training volunteer county court mediators. Mediation is a process by
which a neutral third party, the mediator, sits down with the plaintiff and the
defendant in a dispute, and facilitates discussion between the parties in an
effort to help them come to a mutual agreement, thereby eliminating the need
for a formal court hearing. County court mediators facilitate discussions
in small claims or landlord tenant disputes.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer county court mediator,
please call (863) 534-4571.
