Mediations with e-Court USA

What is Mediation ?

Mediation is a popular form of alternative dispute resolution. Mediation can be either court-ordered or the parties involved can reach a mutual decision to use mediation. A mediator simply assists the disputing parties in working out a resolution through open communication; and at any point during mediation either party can stop the process. Unlike other forms of ADR, a mediator does not issue a binding decision. Instead, the mediator merely acts as a facilitator to help the parties reach a resolution on their own.

When can I use mediation?

You can mediate whenever you have a dispute that could interfere with a business or personal relationship. Mediation may be less costly than going to trial to decide the issue. It may also allow you to arrive at a decision that is more reflective of your needs and priorities, as your mediator will help you to communicate openly and find a compromise that works best for all of the parties involved.

There are a number of different instances where mediation may be useful. Businesses that have strategic alliances may use mediation to resolve differences that their contracts did not contemplate, or to separate amicably. Mediation can also be an alternative to a civil lawsuit or arbitration for both businesses and individuals. Couples who are divorcing often choose mediation to avoid having their affairs documented in court records, or to protect children from any further trauma. Businesses or individuals who have begun a lawsuit can mediate at any time, in order to resolve the lawsuit.

The key to knowing whether mediation may work for you is knowing whether the person you are having a dispute with will compromise or not. Mediation depends on cooperation between the parties involved. The mediator doesn't decide issues and doesn't make binding rulings. He only helps you to work together. If the person you are disputing with is uncompromising, abusive, unwilling to listen, hiding evidence or otherwise engaging in negative behaviors that would make a true compromise impossible, then mediation will just be a waste of everyone's time and money. Don't forget, you will also have to pay for a mediator, and the longer the dispute takes to settle, the more you'll have to pay, that is if you seek mediation outside the e-Court system. Fortunately you will always know costs and duration ( = 6 weeks ) upfront with mediation via e-Court USA.
