Mediation is an alternative dispute procedure in which an impartial third party acts as a mediator to help disagreeing parties successfully come to a resolution that benefits everyone involved. The mediator is often a retired judge or other private attorney, and will help cover the same issues that would be decided in litigation. Mediation can help reach decisions regarding business and civil arrangements, contract disputes, prenuptial agreements, custody agreements, visitation rights, annulment proceedings, and spousal or child support in cases of divorce.
Why Mediation is Preferred to Litigation
Mediation is often preferred to litigation because it can help both parties achieve an amicable resolution. Litigation can be a very long process that is both expensive and adversarial. A mediator can help separate parties gain more control rather than letting a judge decide how their lives will be affected. Mediation also allows all parties to focus on solutions and productive agreements that benefit everyone involved. As a result, mediation can often be far less bitter, and lead to better future relationships.
When Mediation May Not Be Appropriate
In some cases, mediation may not be the best course of action.
- If you feel strongly that the opposing party should be found guilty or admit guilt, litigation may be better suited to your goals.
- If you are seeking to establish a legal precedent that extends beyond your situation, mediation may not be ideal. Any agreements established in mediation do not bind other parties.
- If you are seeking a large award, you may wish to pursue a trial by jury, as mediation does not typically produce significant settlements.
Our team can review your unique case and help you determine how best to proceed. You may be better suited with another alternative dispute resolution technique, such as arbitration, or with a courtroom trial.
