About Mediation


Mediation is a method of dispute resolution in which the parties try to resolve a dispute or reach a settlement with the assistance of a mediator. It is a private, flexible and informal process where a mediator and disputing parties work together to find a solution that is acceptable to everyone. The parties, not the mediator, make the decisions about the terms of their agreement.
The use of mediation and other forms of dispute resolution are increasing as people become aware of how it can help settle disputes quickly and inexpensively.
