Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What is the main advantage of mediation over litigation?

A: Mediation offers several advantages over litigation, including lower costs, faster resolution, preservation of relationships, confidentiality, and the ability for both parties to have more control over the outcome.

Q: How does arbitration differ from mediation?

A: Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates discussions between disputing parties, helping them reach a mutually satisfactory agreement. In contrast, arbitration involves a neutral third party, the arbitrator, who hears both sides of the dispute and makes a binding or non-binding decision, depending on the parties’ agreement.

Q: Can mediation be used in conjunction with other legal processes?

A: Mediation can be used with other legal processes, such as litigation or arbitration. Courts may often require or encourage parties to attempt mediation before proceeding to trial. Mediation can also be employed during ongoing litigation or arbitration to facilitate settlement discussions and resolve the dispute without further legal proceedings.

The Mediation Process: Steps to Achieving a Successful Outcome

Understanding the steps involved in the mediation process can help disputing parties feel more comfortable and prepared as they work toward a resolution. The following stages are generally present in the mediation process:

Divorce Mediation and Arbitration

A. Pre-mediation Preparation

Before the mediation session, the mediator gathers information about the dispute, including the parties involved, their interests, and the key issues at stake. This preparation helps the mediator understand the nuances of the situation and establish a foundation for the mediation process.

B. Opening Session

The mediation session begins with the mediator setting the ground rules and providing an overview of the process. Each party is given the opportunity to present their perspective on the dispute without interruption, allowing everyone to feel heard and understood.

C. Private Caucuses

Following the opening session, the mediator may hold private caucuses with each party separately. These one-on-one meetings allow the mediator to discuss the parties’ concerns and interests in a confidential setting, helping to identify common ground and potential avenues for resolution.

D. Joint Negotiation

Once the mediator clearly understands each party’s needs and interests, they may bring the parties back together for joint negotiations. During this stage, the mediator facilitates constructive communication, encouraging the parties to collaborate on finding a mutually agreeable solution.

E. Agreement and Closure

If the parties can reach an agreement, the mediator assists them in drafting a settlement document that outlines the terms of the resolution. This agreement is typically legally binding, ensuring both parties uphold their commitments. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the mediator may suggest other dispute resolution options, such as arbitration or litigation.
