Ch. 7 - Q35: Why would mediation be a good idea?

A35:       There are a number of benefits to mediation when there is disagreement among friends and family members, including:

  • Personalized solutions to difficult problems. You and the other participants have direct input in the solutions agreed upon, instead of relying solely on a judge’s opinion.
  • Not only can resolve legal issues, but also helps with personal or familial problems.
  • Preserves relationships by using a collaborative process instead of an adversarial process.
  • Reduces the likelihood of future, reoccurring disputes by helping the other participants find ways avoid or manage future disagreements.
  • Can save time and money.
