The Citizen Dispute Settlement Program offers free Mediation Services by the 12th Judicial Circuit Court System, which includes DeSoto, Sarasota and Manatee counties. These services are conducted within the courthouses located in Arcadia, Bradenton, Sarasota and Venice. The program is offered at no cost to residents of the 12th Circuit.

The program is all about resolving conflicts through mediation and gives individuals the opportunity to resolve their disputes in a neutral and confidential setting. Participants can avoid court costs and lost time from work by using mediation rather than litigation. Mediators do not act as judges or attorneys, but assist the parties involved in a dispute to reach an agreement that is then put into writing.
