Will Mediation Work for My Issue?
While there are no guarantees, mediation is an alternative to resolving disputes in court or doing nothing at all. The parties develop a mediated settlement agreement that works for both parties. Issues are brought to the table, discussed in a mature fashion, and topics of dispute are negotiated. Each party has the opportunity to discuss their issues and the desired outcome. The final outcome is a mediated settlement agreement which is a legal document, upheld in court.
Will we settle our dispute?
Not all disputes are settled. But in the mediation process, your dispute has a greater chance of being resolved and the agreement kept because the parties have developed the outcome. There is also a chance that you may partially settle a dispute, narrowing the issues left open for the court to decide.
