Divorce mediation: how it works and why it’s a good choice

"Couples who are getting divorced needn’t go to court. Laurie Greyvenstein, accredited family mediator, clarifies mediation or alternative dispute resolution (ADR). He points out why divorce mediation is much cheaper, faster and more flexible, and explains concepts such as maintenance, parenting plans, and the voice of the child."

The beneficial role of mediation in schools

Sas Otto, accredited mediator and experienced educator, explains how mediation or alternative dispute resolution can be used in schools to resolve conflict creatively and effectively. It can be used in a variety of cases, including disciplinary problems and disputes resulting from peer pressure, bullying or abuse. Sas clarifies the ground rules, principles, advantages, duration and cost of mediation and shows how mediation can take hands with restorative justice, which relies on reconciliation rather than punishment."

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MEDIATION?

Mediation will save you the cost of a trial and bring a dispute to a merciful conclusion. While mediation is a competitive process, it is not a winner-takes-all outcome like a trial. It also allows for creative resolutions that judges cannot order, so the parties remain in control.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT FEES FOR MEDIATION SERVICES?

Like many things in life you get out what you put in and in the case of mediation it is also so. Yes different mediators do charge different rates based on their skill level and experience, but that said mediation always works out much less costly for all involved than litigation.
