MEDIATION: A VIABLE OPTION FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES

Mediation is one of the ADR methods which involves a voluntary arrangement whereby a neutral and impartial third party is appointed by the parties who assists them to identify the issues, reduce misunderstandings and communicates the strengths and weaknesses of their disputed case. Accordingly, the mediator facilitates the dialogue between them with an intention to reach an amicable settlement peacefully without the intervention of the Courts.

WHY OPT FOR MEDIATION OVER LITIGATION?

  • Mediation is less hostile

  • Relationship between the parties isn’t overly damaged

  • Parties have absolute control over mediation and settlement

  • Mediation proceedings are confidential (Mediation in property cases, divorce cases and other family matters, helps to keep the matter limited to the parties only, and does not make it public)

  • Mediation is relatively inexpensive and resolves the dispute quickly

  • Mediation is less stressful as compared to litigation and arbitration

  • Mediation is flexible and not bound by rules of evidence.
