As of April 1st 2014 the law changed regarding the referral of disputes to court. Before a dispute is taken to court all parties involved must undertake a MIAMS mediation meeting.
This meeting involves both parties sitting down together and discussing their problems in a communicative and constructive manner.
Both sides will be able to openly share their opinions and present what they deem to be the facts of the situation. After both parties have shared their problems, under the rule of a mentor, they will hopefully come to an amicable conclusion, whereby some type of agreement is reached that leaves both sides feeling contented.
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.
