Understanding Mediation

 

Mediation is a way to settle disputes without leaving the decision up to a judge. Instead of going through a drawn-out court case, the parties voluntarily participate in a process of negotiation to reach a settlement that is agreeable to all sides. This process is overseen by a neutral third party, the mediator, who facilitates the process without assigning blame or taking sides. A skilled mediator works to:

 

  • Clearly identify the central issues;

  • Explain and enforce the goals and rules of mediation;

  • Discuss the interests and position of each party;

  • Guide joint discussion to effectively address the relevant issues;

  • Shape a settlement that satisfies all those involved;

 

Benefits of Mediation

 

Mediation can help to solve disputes involving a wide variety of legal matters, including divorce and other family law matters, business and property disputes, and almost every other kind of disagreement. Mediation has become popular in so many areas of law because of the many benefits it offers:

 

  • The parties choose the mediator, whereas, in a lawsuit, a judge is assigned by the court.

  • It is less expensive than litigation.

  • Statements made during mediation are usually confidential.

  • The parties maintain control of the process.

  • A settlement is completely voluntary and requires the agreement of all parties.
