What is Mediation?

History

  • Mediation can be traced back to Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.

Types

  • Mediation is used to settle a variety of different disputes including family matters, employment issues and business and commerce disputes.

Significance

  • Choosing mediation to settle a dispute does not result in a loss of any legal rights. If a dispute may not be settled through mediation, each party may continue to seek relief through proper court procedures.

Benefits

  • Mediation allows parties to reach their own solutions to disputes. The mediator acts more as a referee, and is not allowed to take sides or impose decisions. Mediation can be less expensive than disputes that are settled by the court system.

Time Frame

  • In most cases the disputing parties may determine the time frame. The parties and the mediator agree on when to schedule appointments and when a decision is reached.
