 (A) The Interested Parties may engage the services of a mediator, either prior to or after any Interested Party has filed a Pleading before the Court, including an Account filed by a fiduciary for audit.

 (3) Contact information to initiate mediation.

The parties to the mediation may accept the Court's recommendations, in which event the terms agreed upon, as modified, shall be approved, or the parties may decline to accept the Court's recommendations, in which the matter is deemed not to have resulted in an agreement.

 (J) If a case is resolved by mediation and the parties and/or the Court do not require an order or decree pursuant to paragraph (I), the parties shall file a praecipe with the Clerk of the Orphans' Court to have the pleading, objections, or particular, marked settled or withdrawn.

 1. The public is served by speedy and amicable resolution of private disputes. It is in the interests of the Orphans' Court Divisions, of the Courts of Common Pleas of the various judicial districts in the Commonwealth, to encourage Interested Parties to mediate and discuss possibilities for resolution of matters under the Courts' jurisdiction, to resolve disputes in an efficient and fair manner through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. The Courts encourage Interested Parties to participate voluntarily and mutually, rather than enter into adverse litigation. If mediation is unsuccessful, then litigation can proceed for Court adjudication of remaining disputes under its jurisdiction.

 2. The Interested Parties and counsel, identified below, agree that they, and their representatives, shall be bound by 42 Pa.C.S.A. § 5949 (Confidential mediation communications and documents).

 3. Furthermore, during the mediation process, the Interested Parties and counsel shall not disclose the mediation discussions in this matter, except to: (a) the Interested Parties themselves, (b) to their counsel, (c) to any expert(s) assisting counselor (e) as the Interested Parties and their counsel jointly agree In no event shall the Mediator be called upon to disclose what occurred in the mediation.

 4. If the Interested Parties and the counsel jointly agree to disclose some aspects of the mediation discussions, it shall not be considered a waiver of confidentiality of the other aspects of the mediation discussions.

 5. No involvement in the mediation discussions will be allowed to any party in interest who declines to mediate on a confidential basis.

 6. This Agreement does not determine whether any resolution, in itself, would be confidential. This Agreement only determines that the mediation discussions shall remain confidential. Whether or not a resolution itself will remain confidential will be the subject of agreement by the mediation participants.

 7. If any participant, party in interest, counsel, or other representative breaches this Agreement to mediate in confidence, then any other participant or party in interest shall have the power to void, revoke, and terminate any mediation discussions or resolutions.

 8. All persons who sign this Agreement agree, for themselves and their agents or representatives, to honor, both in spirit and in letter, the promise of confidentiality of mediation discussions contained in this Agreement.

 9. All persons who sign this Agreement waive any liability, express, implied, or otherwise, regarding the mediation or the program whereby mediation was initiated, including the actions or omissions of a mediator or a mediation program sponsor.

 10. All persons who sign this Agreement agree that they will enter into the Mediation in ''good faith''. Good faith includes, among other things, the following: 1) being fully prepared to discuss all aspects of the dispute, and possible solutions for resolving it; 2) having the person with the authority to approve the terms for resolution attend the mediation session, or, at the least, be available to confer with the party's representative during the mediation regarding the approval of terms; 3) demonstrating a willingness to listen and understand the perspectives of all participating parties; and (4) treating the parties, the Mediator, and all other participants with civility and respect.

 11. All persons who sign this Agreement agree that the provisions of the Older Adults Protective Services Act, the Act of Dec. 18, 1996, P.L. 1125, No. 169 (35 P.S. §§ 10225.101—10225.5102), and/or the Adult Protective Services Act as amended, to the extent applicable, shall be honored by the Mediator.
