Mediation is an informal and flexible method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In short, it is a negotiation that is facilitated by a neutral third party (the mediator). The mediator doesn't make decisions for the involved parties, but instead, seeks to find common ground. They may interpret concerns, relay information between the parties, offer creative solutions or otherwise assist in resolving differences.
Mediation procedures are often initiated by the private parties but they can sometimes be required by legislation, the courts, or contractual terms. It is often sought in situations where the disagreeing parties will need to maintain an ongoing relationship even after the disagreement is resolved, such as in marital disputes involving children or disputesinvolving business partners.
No, the job of a mediator is not to judge, but to guide the parties to their own unique resolution. A qualified mediator will stay open-minded and leave the decisions to the parties involved. They will use good communication techniques to help parties gather and exchange important information and find a solution to their dispute.
