This form describes the mediation process and related Code of Virginia provisions. When all parties to a mediation have legal counsel to represent them at the mediation, Mediation Consent Form A is used, which allows the parties to choose a neutral evaluation style and/or a neutral facilitation style by the mediator (see paragraph 7).
All parties and their counsel, as well as any other attendees who will be present at the mediation -- for example, a family member or legal assistant -- must read, sign, and provide this form to the ADR Department or mediator before the mediation may proceed. The mediator will discuss the form’s provisions with all attendees and address any questions they may have prior to the start of mediation.
