Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes without the need to go to court. It involves an independent third party, a mediator, who helps both sides come to an agreement. Mediation is a flexible process that can be used to settle disputes in a wide range of situations such as:
- Family Disputes
- Consumer Disputes
- Contract Disputes
- Corporate/Business Disputes
The mediator’s role is to help parties reach a solution to their problem and to arrive at an outcome that both parties are happy with, or at least willing to accept. Mediators avoid taking sides, or making judgments . They are simply responsible for developing effective communication and building consensus between parties. The focus of a mediation meeting is to reach a common sense settlement, agreeable to both parties. Mediation is a voluntary process and will only take place if both parties agree. It is a confidential process where the terms of discussion are not disclosed to any party outside the mediation hearing.
If parties are unable to reach agreement, they can still go to court. Details about what occurred at the mediation will not be disclosed or used at a court hearing.
