Mediation is a means to resolve disputes, using an impartial mediator throughout the process. A mediator does not make the final decision, but helps two parties come to a resolution.
The mediation process consists of a shared session to review rules and define issues and opinions. Then, the mediator continues to meet with each party to relay messages, offers, and proposals. Finally, if the two parties are able to resolve their dispute, a settlement is reached.
What is Mediation?
In mediation, two parties involve an impartial third party to help them resolve a dispute.
Who does the Mediator represent?
A mediator represents both parties neutrally. A mediator is not on the side of either party, but acts as an impartial third party.
What are the advantages of Mediation?
Mediation can be more efficient and affordable than litigation, saving the parties involved time and money. In addition, both parties may be more likely to follow through on the agreed upon terms since they are both involved in the agreement. Finally, since both parties are involved in coming to an agreement in a mediation, both parties have more say in the outcome of their dispute.
Will the Mediator help me prepare court documents?
If the mediator is also an attorney, the mediator could help the parties prepare for their final settlement, which includes preparing court documents.
Does the Mediator go to Court with us?
No, mediation is an informal process and does not involve the mediator attending court with the parties involved.
