Mediation is a voluntary process in which a neutral third party, called a mediator, helps people in conflict to communicate and reach a mutually-acceptable resolution to their dispute. Mediation can be an effective alternative to going to court for resolving conflicts. Some benefits of mediation include:
Mediation is usually faster and less expensive than going to court.
Mediation is usually less stressful and more private than going to court.
Mediation allows the parties to have more control over the outcome of their dispute, as they are able to come up with their own solutions rather than having a judge decide for them.
Mediation can improve communication and understanding between the parties, which can help to preserve relationships and reduce the chances of future conflicts.
Mediation can be used to resolve a wide range of conflicts, including disputes between family members, neighbors, and business partners.
