What is the Benefit Of a Mediation?
Mediation is an arrangement made between two or more parties to bring about a resolution to a dispute. In this arrangement, the mediator provides his assistance to the parties to discuss their settlement.
When two disputing parties are negotiating on their settlement, the mediator intervenes to express his thought so that the mediation will lead to a fair and acceptable settlement for both the disputing parties. It is noticed that when two parties are given a chance to negotiate over a disputed issue, they can reach a reasonable settlement.
During an ADR, the parties can negotiate on the specific issue which has led to the dispute. When there is a dispute over an issue, the discussion can lead to an argument. The role of a mediator will come into play in such a situation. Besides controlling the climate of the meeting, the mediator will also advise the parties on options that are available to bring about a favorable settlement for everyone involved.
A mediator is experienced and works as a guide to disputing parties who want a fair settlement. A mediator’s duty is to discuss their issue in a disciplined environment. He will help them to work on resolving the issue, so that they can get back to living their lives happily once again.
As time passes by, it is understandable that people change and they start to expect much more than what they used to earlier in their lives. The problem starts when a disputing party is not willing to accept any change in their initial agreement. At such a juncture, a mediator’s role is vital as the future of the two parties depends on the settlement which will be brought about after a fair discussion. Mediation may be sought after by a couple who want to resolve their issue with each other without going to the court. If the couple has children, then the divorce could have a negative effect on them. Besides dealing with the stress and going through emotional turmoil, the couple can never be sure if the case will go in their favor if they drag their dispute to court. Hence they opt for an alternative option of mediation. A Scottsdale mediator’s duty is to help the two parties in making their decision but not actually deciding for them. He offers them enough guidance to reach a settlement and freedom to decide their future on their own.
