Must all legal disputes be resolved through civil litigation?

In today's world, when a dispute arises, there are different legal options for the parties to the dispute to consider. Those in the Quad Cities involved in a legal dispute may wonder what the different dispute resolution options available to them are.

Civil litigation is a process that begins with a plaintiff bringing a legal claim in court against a defendant. The litigation process may sometimes be necessary but can also be costly, time consuming and stressful. As a result, potential litigants should be familiar with the other options available to help them resolve their legal disputes as they arise. Different types of alternative dispute resolution processes can help litigants resolve their disputes in a more efficient manner.

The mediation process can save cost, time and acrimony. The mediation process is a process of negotiating a dispute with the aid of a neutral third party. The neutral third party commonly has legal training to help guide litigants through the process. The neutral third party does not make a binding decision, but rather facilitates an agreed upon outcome. Mediation may be required according to contract terms between the parties or directed by other means.

Mediation can be a useful solution to a legal dispute for parties who wish to resolve their dispute in a manner that is quicker and potentially less acrimonious. It comes as no surprise that legal disputes arise, which is why it is helpful for parties to a dispute to be familiar with the different legal options available to help them resolve whatever concerns they may have.
