The best time is sooner rather than later, before the parties incur the expense and emotional turmoil of legal litigation. It frequently happens that one party is ready to begin mediating before the other, so some sensitivity to the feelings of the other party is courteous. If legal representation has already been secured, it is not too late. Most cases settle before trial, so it’s almost never too late to mediate. Most legal professionals and courts advise mediation before litigation.
