|Mediation: What is
Mediation is a
fast, relatively inexpensive way to resolve disputes. The
co-mediation process uses third party neutrals, known as mediators,
to facilitate resolution. The mediators have been trained to work
with all parties to help them find a way to resolve their dispute.
The goal is for the parties to reach a voluntary agreement of their
own. Mediators cannot make decision or force decisions on the
parties to the dispute.
