Mediation Program


DeKalb County Magistrate Court provides a Mediation Program to you as a free, easy, and convenient way to resolve your dispute from your computer or mobile device.

Mediation Program

The Mediation Program program is a web-based mediation tool provided by the Court. The process is like in-person mediation but offers the added benefit of mediating at a time and place that is convenient for you. Parties and/or their attorneys register using their case number, an email address and/or cell phone number.

What is mediation?

Mediation is an informal and non-adversarial process for parties and/or their attorneys to discuss and hopefully resolve their dispute with the assistance of a mediator. The mediator, a neutral third-party, guides the discussion but has no authority to decide the case. Mediators also do not provide legal or financial advice.

How does the Mediation Program work?

Once registered, parties and/or their attorneys, with or without the assistance of a mediator, message one another using the Mediation Program platform. If an agreement is reached, the agreement is created on the platform, sent to the parties or their attorneys to review and sign electronically, and then sent to the judge to review and sign. Agreements signed by the judge are filed with the Court, sent to the parties and/or their attorneys, and the case is closed. If no agreement is reached, the case will be placed on a calendar for a hearing.
