Is mediation confidential?

The mediator shall preserve and maintain discussion of any information pertaining to the actual content of the case from anyone outside of the mediation session. However, procedural issues may need clarification from the mediation office.

Court personnel or other observers will be held to the same level of confidentiality as is required of the mediator and the parties themselves. Mediation coordinators may be present strictly for the purpose of upholding the high standards of the mediation program and will in no way be reporting the contents of the mediation to any judicial officer.
