What is a Mediator?
A mediator is a trained impartial third person who assists disputing parties in reaching an acceptable agreement or settlement which is devised solely by the parties.
A mediator does not cast judgement, take “sides,” offer solutions or decide outcomes for resolution. Rather, mediators should be highly skilled in helping the parties sift through facts, emotions and individual interests to help them clarify what issues need to be resolved.
A mediator will utilize techniques in order to help parties create their own resolution.
A mediator is in control of the process of mediation but the parties involved are in control of the outcome.
A mediator can be hired by the court (court-ordered mediation) or any individual can choose to hire a mediator outside of the court (private mediation).
What is Mediation?Mediation is a voluntary process whereby parties come together in a private setting to reach an agreement. Mediation can be binding or non-binding depending on the situation.
There are 2 types of Mediation:
- Court-Ordered Mediation
- Private Mediation
Differences between Court-Ordered Mediation and Private MediationCourt-Ordered Mediation:
- Is when a party has filed a claim in court. The court then orders the parties in that case to first attempt mediation to try to resolve their dispute before a trial can occur.
- Can be an informal meeting among the parties or a scheduled settlement conference.
- Is confidential from the court. Whether or not parties come to an agreement, settlement discussions cannot be discussed in court.
- Is voluntary only after the parties have first tried to negotiate an agreement in mediation but decide that they would rather the court decide the outcome. This usually happens only when a party/both parties are very far apart and/or strongly opposed to a compromise.
- is an alternative to going to court
- goal of private mediation is to settle all your issues… not just the ones the court can judge
- If one has an attorney they are welcome to attend
