Mediation is an informal and flexible dispute resolution process. The mediator's role is to guide the parties toward their own resolution. Through joint sessions and separate caucuses with parties, the mediator helps both sides define the issues clearly, understand each other's position and move closer to resolution.
**Caucuses: Is a safe and private meeting with a mediator if needed by either participant or group of participants.
Using mediation, two or more people can resolve a dispute informally, confidentially and quickly with the help of a neutral third person called a mediator. The process is more cost-effective than going to court and the parties are in control of the outcome; the decision is yours why allow someone else decide what is best for you and your family such as an arbitrator or a judge.
When parties successfully reach a mutually acceptable resolution to their dispute it is put into writing and the parties sign the agreement. (It really is that simple). The agreements are long-lasting because parties reach the terms of the agreement on their own rather than have the terms imposed on them through arbitration or a judge. The best part about mediation is no one loses.
