Mediator Scheduling

Welcome to the Mediator Scheduler!

This is where mediators can sign up to mediate ODR cases via Fairfax County’s Matterhorn ODR platform and in-person in Arlington GDC, the City of Falls Church GDC, and Loudoun GDC.

Matterhorn ODR

You may sign up for as many Monday’s as you would like available for the requested registration month only. When you select a Monday, you are alerting us that you are free to receive a case by Wednesday of that week and that you commit to scheduling/completing your mediation with the parties by Wednesday of the following week.

Note: The number of cases are limited at this time due to 1) smaller dockets in Court, 2) lack of valid contact information for parties, and 3) only a few cases (with contact information) want to move forward with mediation. This seems to be a statewide issue as a result of COVID-19. Though some details are still in the works, we will try to provide as many mediators as possible opportunities to mediate. *Registration does not guarantee a case; you will only receive a case assignment if there is one to move forward.

Please click the link below to sign up. Once you have selected a Monday/10-day window, click the shift time (9am) and a new screen will open for you to complete your contact information and submit the request.
