Dispute Resolution Procedures


Private Sector

The court encourages parties to consider private sector providers who offer ADR services. Private ADR providers come from a variety of backgrounds and generally have expertise in dispute resolution techniques. They usually charge a fee.

The Center publishes a consumer guide, “Selecting a Mediator,” to assist in the selection of a mediator.


Statewide Community Mediation Centers

Community mediation centers provide volunteer mediators statewide for thousands of cases, including those referred by the courts, and other administrative, law enforcement, or justice system departments and agencies. Contact a center on your island, or in your county, for more information.
