Legal disputes are often expensive and time consuming. Therefore, there are times when people surrender claims they are entitled to, just to avoid spending a lot of resources. At other times, the adversarial nature of litigation would be something you want to avoid.
Mediation and arbitration are effective ways of resolving a dispute without the need for litigation. This is an especially popular and effective way of reaching a resolution in family law cases.
Mediation involves the parties in a dispute meeting with a neutral third-party – a mediator – who then attempts to reach a resolution which is acceptable to everyone concerned. If the parties cannot reach an amicable agreement during mediation, the case may move to arbitration. In arbitration, all parties agree to settle matters out of court. The arbitrator, just like a judge, hears the case and makes a decision which is considered final.
