What is Mediation? Mediation is a process where an impartial third party, known as a mediator, helps disputing parties to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. It’s a voluntary process that encourages open communication and negotiation, allowing parties to explore solutions collaboratively.

How Mediation Works:

  1. Initial Meeting: All parties meet with the mediator to outline the issues at hand.

  2. Identifying Interests: The mediator helps each party to communicate their needs and interests.

  3. Exploring Options: Parties work together to explore potential solutions.

  4. Negotiation: The mediator assists in negotiating an agreement that satisfies all parties.

  5. Final Agreement: Once an agreement is reached, it’s often put into writing.

Benefits of Mediation:

  • Cost-Effective: Generally, mediation is less expensive than going to court.

  • Time-Saving: It’s usually a quicker process than traditional litigation.

  • Confidential: Unlike court proceedings, mediation is private.

  • Control: Parties have more control over the outcome, as opposed to a court decision.

  • Preserves Relationships: Mediation promotes understanding and communication, which can preserve personal or business relationships.

When is Mediation Suitable? Mediation can be effective in a variety of disputes, including but not limited to:

  • Business and commercial conflicts

  • Family disputes, including divorce and child custody

  • Employment disagreements

  • Neighborhood and property disputes
