What is mediation?
Mediation is a less stressful and non-combative process in which a unbiased person, called a mediator, assists a discussion and negotiation between conflicting parties in an effort to settle the problem before it gets worse or goes to court.
Benefits of Mediation
- Save Time and Money – less to no legal or lawyers fees
- Control the Outcome – don’t have a judge, boss, etc. decide your life
- Faster Results
- Higher Rate of Success – more likely to be paid than through court
- Creative Outcomes- not limited by court, business, community restrictions or legalities
Justice and Fairness
Parties often expect the court system to provide justice in their case. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. The court system can only give the legally right outcome, based on what can be proven to the judge. Often what is legally right is not what is morally right. Mediation can provide a place to consider the non-legal aspects of a case and take them into consideration of the outcome.
Who uses mediation?
Mediation is most often seen in the court cases in an effort to settle cases before they go to trial. However, mediation can be used anywhere that conflict exists such as in the workplace, marriage, neighborhood, school, etc.
What type of issues shouldn’t go to mediation?
While mediation can be beneficial in most instances, there are some conflicts that are not suited to mediation. If either party feels intimidated or coerced during the process or fears the other party, mediation should not be used.
