Benefits of Mediation

The mediation process offers many benefits over litigation, including:

Reduced costs

Traditional litigation is generally very expensive due to the time spent in court. Employing a skilled mediator costs significantly less than a lawyer and disputes can often be resolved much faster than going to trial

maintain relationships

Settling a family or civil dispute through the adversarial process of the courts often puts stress and pressure on the relationship between both parties. The collaborative process of mediation enables disputes to be resolved more amicably, helping to restore, enhance or rebuild relationships.

Private & Productive

Unlike public court proceedings, mediation is a private and confidential process held in a neutral environment where parties have the ability to openly voice their position. The mediator, acting as an impartial third-party, speaks to the parties privately or together, listens to all views and guides them to a mutually beneficial resolution.

Greater Control

Mediation gives you greater control over the terms of your agreement. Instead of depending on a lawyer or judge to determine the outcome, you maintain control throughout the negotiation process, giving you the freedom to make decisions you know are in the best interests of your family.
