Mediation and Arbitration are forms of alternative dispute resolution aimed at resolving issues arising from separation and marriage breakdown, or any type of litigation outside of Court.
During Mediation / Arbitration, the parties attend mediation sessions with or without their own lawyers, with a Mediator who serves as a neutral third party guiding the couple through the process and helping build consensus on issues.
While the process is collaborative and aimed at providing the two parties with the information and support they need to develop workable solutions to disputed issues, each party should have his or her own lawyer available during negotiations and to review the elements of any agreement before it is finalized. Arbitrators will impose a decision on the parties while a Mediator will not.
