Mediation – cost effective, fast way to deal with children, finance, property and pensions.
Have you ever been in a conflict where you and the other person could not see eye to eye? In such times, a mediator is the best way to help both parties understand one another and come to a fair, mutually beneficial agreement.
Why mediators work:
1) Mediators are impartial third parties with everyone’s best interest at heart
2) No one feels like they’re not being heard
3) The mediator helps the clients reach a mutually beneficial agreement
For whom mediation works:
1) People seeking fair custody agreements
2) Business partners looking to go their separate ways
3) Any pair of individuals (or groups) seeking a mutually beneficial agreement
Principles of mediation
1) The mediator does not make the final decision, they merely aid in the process
2) Either party may end the process at any time
3) The mediator helps develop strategies to overcome obstacles which hinder agreement
Benefits vs. court
1) Less cost
2) Less stressful
3) More likely to get fair results for all parties
Nevertheless, if an agreement has not been reached and the dispute does have to be taken to court, a judge must see that a MIAMS meeting has taken place and that the dispute coming to court was the only course of action that could have been logically taken.
