Mediation usually provides a quicker, more cost effective and more satisfactory outcome than legal litigation. It may take months and sometimes years to resolve a disagreement in court, mediation can be paced according to the parties’ needs and schedule. Mediation is voluntary and requires both parties agreement to the make a final resolution. Therefore, parties are more satisfied with the outcome than with a decision made by a judge or jury. This results in a higher likelihood of compliance with the mutual agreement since parties are usually more likely to comply with a solution to which they agreed. In mediation, the parties are able to customize the resolution agreement to meet their needs rather than being constrained by the limited options available in court. Most important, parties are more likely to preserve an amicable relationship in the future.
