Please feel free to register: West Hawai'i Mediation Center intake questionnaire.

It may be helpful to let them know: 

- mediation is voluntary, so both parties have to agree to participate (we are happy to contact the other party to ask if they will participate)

- currently there are no fees for landlord-tenant mediation. for other kinds of mediation (that are not court-referred), there may be a small fee to help cover our operating costs.
