Mediation is simply letting people who have some kind of conflict sit down together and try to find a way to settle their dispute. Sometimes it is difficult or even impossible for people to talk to each other so bringing in a neutral third party to mediate between them is the answer. A mediator can help diffuse difficult conversations and using a formal process the mediator works with the participants to move toward a solution.
If they do come to a solution, the mediator can help them write up an agreement that can most often be upheld by the courts. Amazingly the success rate in reaching an agreement is over 75%. Mediation can be for any type of conflict from business to personal and can cover almost any situation. Many people want to call an attorney when a problem comes up but mediation is much more cost effective.
Some of the issues that can be mediated are:
- Credit agreements
- Real estate
- Home owner/ HOA
Mediation makes sense even when the legal system cannot provide the remedy you want:
- You want to end a problem, not a relationship
- Your dispute is private and you want to keep it that way
- You want to minimize costs
- You want to settle your dispute promptly
- You are having difficulty initiating negotiations, or lack of negotiation skills
