Benefits of Mediation

Mediation has many benefits over court processes and some other methods of alternative dispute resolution. The parties make their own agreement rather than having a decision imposed on them by a third party.  They can be more flexible and creative in deciding outcomes which suit them.  The parties choose the mediator - Judges are appointed by the Court. Mediation is a confidential process while the Courts are subject to public record.  The mediation process can be specifically designed to suit the particular dispute and the needs of the parties.  Mediation generally takes a lot less time and is less expensive than litigation.  Mediation can help rebuild or preserve relationships.   read more
