Dispute resolution

If any dispute arises under the terms of this agreement, the parties agree to select a mutually agreeable neutral third party mediator/ arbitrator to assist them in mediating it.
Any mediation undertaken will be conducted for a maximum of four hours or as determined mutually by the parties at the time.

If the parties have failed to resolve the matter after the allotted mediation time allowance, the mediator shall become the arbitrator and, after a short break as mutually agreed to or as determined by the arbitrator, the parties shall commence a one hour arbitration hearing if the parties and the mediator all reside within two hours drive of each other, otherwise, mediation/ arbitration will be by a "documents only" submission through email.

The fee for the mediation and/or arbitration will be split equally by the parties and paid before the award is issued. In the event the arbitration is by hearing, the arbitrator will present his or her award verbally and immediately at the hearing and the parties will comply with the award immediately and at the hearing.
If by e mail, the arbitrator will present his or her award by e mail and the parties will comply as directed by the arbitrator.

The decision of the arbitrator shall be final (this avoids the possible expense and hassle of going to court).



Special Financial Considerations

If there are special financial considerations, please inform me of them. I strongly believe that no one should remain in a high-demand group because of lack of family resources and will attempt to assist all those in need.

For former members unable to pay my regular fees I offer a reduced rate for telephone and in person counseling at my office.
