Settling disputes through litigation can be time consuming and costly for litigants which is why it is at least worth it for them to take a look at different legal options available to help them resolve their concern. Mediation is an alternative that can save time and money and may resolve the dispute in a more peaceful fashion.
Unlike traditional civil litigation, mediation provides the parties to a dispute a venue to discuss how they can settle their disputes and concerns. The parties meet and can discuss their dispute and concerns with the help of a trained mediator. The mediator can help guide the parties through their concerns to reach a resolution that both parties can live with. Rather than the court making the decision for them, the parties reach a resolution to their dispute for themselves with the help of the mediation process.
The mediation process can provide parties to the dispute with more control over the process and the outcome of their own dispute. The mediation process can help provide an alternative for both neighbors or business partners that find themselves in a dispute that they need to resolve. Mediation provides a more amicable option that traditional litigation and can result in less acrimony between the parties. It can also provide a way of resolving any dispute that comes up down the road.
There are a variety of different legal resources available to litigants involved in a dispute. Depending on their goals for the process, and the needs of the parties, different options are available including the mediation process to help resolve disputes and the parties should be familiar with all of the options available to them.
