What Is the Purpose of Mediation?

The goal in mediation is to share the needs and concerns of both sides and, with the help of the neutral third party, to arrive at a workable agreement that allows the parties to avoid court. In some instances, mediation may lead to compromise and agreement on some issues while others remain to be settled by a judge or jury. This still delivers benefit by reducing the list of points to be litigated and thereby reducing the associated expense, time, and stress of a trial.

The Role of the Mediator

While agreements reached at mediation are generally binding, the mediator does not have the authority to make a binding decision concerning the issues raised in litigation and cannot testify if the matter reaches trial. Parties can agree to attend mediation or the court may order it, with many courts requiring parties to participate in mediation prior to a final hearing of their case.
