WHAT IS MEDIATION?

Mediation is an alternative to lawsuits in civil disagreements. A mediator is a neutral third party whose job is not to take sides or make decisions, but to help each party evaluate goals and options in order to find a solution that works for everyone. When you reach an agreement with an opposing party through mediation, you can make it legally binding by writing down your decisions in the form of an enforceable contract. Or, in some areas, you can have your agreement made part of a court judgment.
HOW DOES MEDIATION DIFFER FROM ARBITRATION?

A mediator normally has no authority to render a decision; it's up to the parties themselves -- with the mediator's help -- to work informally toward their own agreement. An arbitrator, on the other hand, conducts a contested hearing between the parties and then, acting as a judge, rends a legally binding decision.
