Early Settlement Mediators
Early Settlement's Mediators are community volunteers who have been carefully selected and have completed specialized training in mediation. After completing training and ongoing supervision mediators are certified by the Administrative Director of the Courts.
Scheduling Your Mediation
Referrals for mediation come from many sources: judges, attorneys, district attorneys, businesses, and Oklahoma citizens,
The first step in scheduling a mediation is the completion of an Intake Form.
Upon receiving the Intake Form, Early Settlement will confirm the willingness of both parties to participate in mediation. After confirmation a mediator will be assigned to the case.
Each mediation takes place in the county where the case was filed, if it has been filed with the court. Parties may request an alternate location as long as it is within the Early Settlement - East Central Program area. The date, place, and time of day will be selected for the mediation and paperwork will be sent.
If individuals desiring mediation have attorneys, Early Settlement will work directly with the attorneys to coordinate the mediation. Paperwork will come to the participants through their attorney's office.
