What Is Mediation?

Simply, mediation is a form of dispute resolution where the parties involved bring in an impartial third party to use his/her expertise to help them work through their differences to a solution. The parties to disputes that may be mediated can include individuals, corporations, organizations and even governments.

To begin a mediation, a nonpartisan mediator who is knowledgeable in the area of dispute is brought in by the parties to guide them in negotiation, to air differences and to arrive at at a solution or agreement to the matter at hand.

Mediation lends itself most easily to situations where both parties have an interest in reaching an agreement that works for both.  Such situations include prenuptial agreements, divorce, separation, eldercare, family issues, estate disputes, medical issues, grievances, land use, landlord-tenant disputes, contracts and other disputes that are not highly adversarial.

Mediation has been around in one form or another ever since man started having business or social interactions with each other.  Mediators have been known over time by many other names including medium, interpolator, intercessor, conciliator, interlocutor and more.  Some cultures have restricted the use of mediation and/or required that only certain authorities can act as a mediator.
