Mediation is a consensus based alternative dispute resolution process that gives people the opportunity to resolve their family law dispute without going to court.
The mediator acts as an impartial third party to guide the participants to identify the issues that need to be resolved, and come up with solutions that are acceptable to both parties.
Mediation can be conducted either with the assistance of lawyers, or with self-represented litigants. Parties need to obtain independent legal advice prior to finalizing any agreement reached at mediation.
Mediation is often the most cost effective way of resolving family law issues, and reduces conflict between parties compared to the adversarial litigation process.
