What is Mediation?

Mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), aims to assist two (or more) parties in reaching an agreement. An agreement reached by the parties is preferred over accepting a decision imposed by a third party.
 
Disputes can arise within families, organizations or business relationships. Mediated divorce settlements, including child custody arrangements and property settlement, can often be accomplished at much lower cost and with less anxiety than through litigation.
 
The mediator is impartial in the mediation process and uses appropriate techniques and skills to open and improve dialogue between disputants. The mediator will help the parties reach an agreement on the disputed matter.
 
Mediation is quick, private, fair, and inexpensive compared to litigation. Mediation sessions are usually scheduled quickly -- and most sessions last only a few hours or a day, depending on the type of case. In contrast, litigation may take many months to resolve.
