01 Apr What is Mediation?
Mediators are trained to help resolve disputes. It may be that you have reached agreement about most issues but you are stuck on one particular issue and a mediator might be able to assist you with that one issue. Alternatively, if you need help with all of the issues then a mediator can assist you to work through each of them to find a solution.
A mediator works as a neutral. They meet separately with each of the parties to assess suitability for mediation and to get an understanding of what the dispute is about. The mediator will then coordinate joint meetings between both parties at which meetings the parties will identify the issues upon which they cannot agree and work through those issues with the mediator until they reach an agreement.
