    Tips To Resolve Issues During Mediation

    If you are involved in a legal proceeding that requires you to go to mediation, there are several things that you should understand about this process. Mediation is often a solution that companies use during insurance and contract disputes. Mediation is also common in divorce and family court matters.

    Binding And Non-Binding Mediation

    The two main types of mediation are binding and non-binding. Binding mediation means that when the mediation has ended, both parties must adhere to the decision of the mediator. Non-binding means that if either party does not agree at the end of the process, they can file a lawsuit against the other party.

    You Can Have Legal Representation

    It is a misconception that you must attend a mediation session by yourself. To protect your rights, you should always secure legal representation before going into the mediation hearing. An attorney can ensure that your rights are protected and that the mediator remains neutral towards both sides of the case.

    Mediation May Be The Right Option For Your Legal Dispute

    Many people believe that mediation is set aside only for contract disputes. The truth is, you can use it for many different types of legal proceedings. The best use for mediation is when both parties need to come to a final conclusion about a specific subject matter. For instance, mediation works very well when two business partners are trying to fairly divide assets that they have recently sold when their partnership dissolved. Mediation is much faster and more economical than a long, drawn out court case.

    Always Read The Small Print In Contracts

    Because the cost for mediation is very economical, many large corporations now include a mediation clause in all of their contracts that they use with consumers. Credit card companies are a great example of a contract that requires binding mediation if there is a dispute with the credit card account.
