Mediation in NC Estate and Guardianship Matters


Clerks of Court, the ex officio judges of probate and guardianship matters in North Carolina Counties, can now order mediation in those cases.  Parties to the proceedings can also request that mediation be ordered.  See this memo on the Clerk Mediation Program from the North Carolina Court System website.

While I don’t get involved in many contested matters, I have seen mediation work wonders.  In many court systems, mediation is mandatory for civil proceedings.  It can save time and money for the parties and help ease the crowded court dockets.
