Mediation is a form of conflict resolution which is designed to help clients come to a mutually acceptable agreement, without going to court. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution, in the sense of being an alternative to litigation.
Mediators do not take the side of one party or the other. They are impartial third parties trained to guide and facilitate negotiation between the individuals until they reach a settlement each feels is fair and reasonable.
Due to emphasis on points of agreement and calm, respectful communication, clients frequently find mediation to be a less tense, more positive way to settle their differences than taking their case to court. Since no court dates must be arranged, it can also be a more rapid and cost-effective way to conclude this disagreement and move on with one's life. Since clients can customize their mediated agreement to their specific wishes, they may be more content with results than cases where a judge imposes the decisions - which then become legally binding upon them.
