Mediation is Voluntary, non-binding and private
Mediation is a voluntary, non-binding private dispute resolution process where parties are encouraged to work cooperatively and constructively together in the problem solving process. Mediation helps you to resolve disputes whilst aiding in reducing any future acrimony by identifying and resolving the key issues with the full participation and agreement of all those involved.
Mediation is offered and promoted by the judiciary as an alternative to using litigation; the generally well recognised and traditionally accepted Court process for resolving disputes. Litigation is generally a time consuming, difficult and expensive process. The results of which frequently leave disharmony and a breakdown in relationships.
