When it comes to dispute resolution, there are so many options available to you. It is often understandable that disputants are confused about which process applies best to their situation. Generally, dispute resolution is a process of resolving a dispute or conflict between different parties. Essentially, dispute resolution can be a great way of solving a conflict situation without requiring going to court.
In simple words, dispute resolution is a process to resolve a conflict, a dispute, or a claim between parties. This process can be a good alternative to going to court and a process that works in parallel with potential litigation or litigation. Usually, alternative dispute resolution takes the approach of either mediation or arbitration.
Considering Mediation for Dispute Resolution
When choosing mediation for dispute resolution, the process involves a neutral party to help disputants come to a consensus on themselves. Instead of imposing a solution, a qualified yet experienced mediator works with conflicting sides to explore the interests underlying their positions.
Mediation can work effectively at allowing both parties to express their personal feelings and completely express their grievances. Working with both parties together and sometimes separately, a mediator can help the parties find a solution that is voluntary and sustainable. Since the parties came up with the solution there is a much greater probability that follow-through will take place because everyone bought into the solution. In the mediation process, both parties make the decisions; and the mediator remains neutral.
With a highly skillful, knowledgeable mediator working with the parties, both parties explore facts, issues, and emotions around the issues and interests. As a result, they work towards a resolution that both can choose to move forward. In this situation, a professional mediator can work with parties all in a location or virtually. The parties may caucus periodically with one party at different times during one session, and the mediator may go back and forth between both parties or have all parties in one room. The process is voluntary. The mediation may result in a binding agreement if both parties choose so. In addition, the mediation is confidential.
