Is mediation the right way to resolve your legal dispute?

New Jersey readers know that legal disputes can be complex and difficult, and in some cases, they can be quite expensive to resolve. Thankfully, there are legal ways to work through complicated disputes that do not involve litigation, fighting and unnecessary expenses. One option is mediation. 

Mediation is a reasonable and smart way to resolve disputes that may otherwise cost you a lot of time, money and stress. This process employs a third-party mediator to help the two opposing sides reach a beneficial agreement. If you are facing a divorce or other matter, you may consider the various options for dispute resolution before you move forward. 

What is mediation?

Mediation involves respectful conversations and discussions between two parties who disagree on a significant legal matter. This process requires the assistance of a neutral mediator who will facilitate conversations and help you and the other party reach a reasonable conclusion. The goal of mediator will do the following:

  • He or she will encourage discussions and the open exchange of pertinent information during this process.
  • The mediator's job is to help you and the other party find common ground on an issue, leading to a reasonable agreement on your issue.
  • A mediator has the right to suggest creative solutions, and you may employ the mediator to help you draft a final agreement.

Many people find great benefit in mediation because it allows them to resolve legal disputes in a way that does not require them to go to court. Some of the other benefits include a savings in cost and time as you will not have to go through the lengthy litigation process. Mediation is also less stressful and complex, and it can allow you move forward with confidence regarding your agreement.

Should you consider this option?

There are many reasons why mediation can be a smart choice, but that does not necessarily mean it is the right option for you. Before you begin this process, you may find it helpful to seek a complete evaluation of your case and explanation of your options. 

Mediation does not require that you get along with the other party, but it does require that both sides commit to the process and resolve to work together to come to a reasonable solution. If the mediation process breaks down, the two sides will have to either start over again or resort to a formal litigation process.
