What does a mediator do?
A mediator is a neutral, unbiased person that helps people who are in conflict find a resolution. Most mediations happen in the context of litigation, but mediation can also be helpful in other situations. A mediator never imposes a specific resolution. Instead, a mediator helps people in conflict explore acceptable solutions.
Who pays for the mediation?
The parties involved in a mediation typically split the cost equally, unless otherwise agreed, or unless otherwise provided by law.
How long does a mediation take?
Every mediation process is unique. As a result, the time involved can not be determined beforehand. However, most mediations will last at least 2 hours, and can be concluded in a morning or an afternoon.
