The 4th Judicial District Mediation Office is a court-associated alternative dispute resolution program providing experienced, quality services to parties engaged in litigation. The office is affiliated with the state Office of Dispute Resolution in Denver but is also independently responsible for designing programs and contracting with mediators that fit the specific needs and have the confidence of the local courts. The office was created to serve the judiciary and the citizens of El Paso and Teller County but is also a resource to other agencies and courts in the district. The office receives its authority from the Colorado legislature through The Dispute Resolution Act, 13-22­301,et seq, Colorado Revised Statutes.

The Office of Dispute Resolution ("The Mediation Office" or "ODR") is a full service provider offering mediation, mediation-arbritration, arbitration, and settlement conferences by seasoned mediators and arbiters. The mediators and arbiters have many years of experience and training and handle complex county and district civil, divorce, dependency and neglect (juvenile), child custody cases, criminal and probate cases.
