An Alberta mediator can provide a confidential, informal model of alternative dispute resolution that will allow local Canadians to resolve disputes that they may be having. the mediation is a trained professional whose main purpose is to open a reasonable dialogue between the two disputants. The mediator does not pass judgment, nor will they declare one party right or wrong.
On average, disputants who go through court spend around double the amount of time reaching resolution as those who opt for mediation. Usually a single mediation session is complete in about 3-4 hours of time. This is a benefit not only because it saves time, but because the shorter the time spent ending a dispute, the less money will be spent resolving it.
An additional benefit to this type of resolution is that it permits those involved to bring their dispute to a good-natured close, without either party being forced to give in. Disputes that are concluded in this way are done so in a much gentler and friendlier way than those which are handled through the court system.
Mediation, in stark contrast to other types of resolution, is wholly voluntary and everyone involved has to agree to attend the meetings and work toward resolution, prior to the first meeting. Much of the time these proceedings go off without a snag and the two parties are able to come to a reasonable and peaceful agreement that concludes their dispute. Occasionally there are disputes that do not get resolved within the confines of the mediator’s office and have to eventually work their way to a different type of resolution.
Disputants may bring their attorney to a mediation session, although this is rare and not truly necessary. There isn’t a lot for a lawyer to do during this type of non-judged mediation. For those who do choose to take a lawyer with them to their meetings with the Alberta mediator, it is up to the mediation professional to determine what the legal counsel will do throughout the meeting.
Most domestic disputes can be taken care of with this method instead of ever having to go with the court. Families, divorcees, and employers often use this form of resolution to solve their unique conflicts. When it comes to very minor conflicts, this type of resolution is sometimes the only option.
Locating an Alberta mediator to give you assistance with your dispute resolution is a valuable and cost effective alternative to going through the court system. The compromise that the disputing parties comes to is as concrete as any legal judgment.
