What Is Mediation
Mediation is a voluntary informal process where both the parties have control over the outcome. Mediators are totally impartial which means that they will facilitate the mediation whilst maintaining a neutral role – neither party will be forced into an agreement.
The process is entirely confidential and so is the outcome, which can be drawn up as a legal document or remain as a signed up informal agreement.
Why Choose Mediation?
