Do You Have A Dispute with your Neighbor?
Submitted By Naomi Parada, Alternative Dispute Resolution
The City of Albuquerque offers free Community Mediation to help you resolve the problem. What is Community Mediation? Community Mediation is a dispute resolution process designed for Albuquerque
citizens and neighbors to resolve conflict and disputes within their own community. Mediation is private, confidential, voluntary and a cost-effective alternative to court.
Mediators, or impartial third parties, assist individuals in finding a mutually acceptable solution to their problem. Mediators do not blame, judge who is right or wrong, or make decisions about what should
happen. In mediation you and your neighbor are responsible for designing an outcome that works for both of you. Mediation provides an opportunity to express differences and improve relationships by:
- Reducing communication obstacles in order to define and clarify issues;
- Explore possible solutions; and
- Create solutions that reflect the unique needs and interests of the situation.
Best of all it works! – Because participants are involved in creating their own solution research shows people are more satisfied with the result and comply with the terms of the agreement.
This is a free service to all residents in the City of Albuquerque. If you would like more information, please contact the Alternative Dispute Resolution Office at 505-768-4500.
