  • What exactly is Mediation and what are the RULES?

    Mediation is a process under which an impartial person, the Mediator, facilitates communication between the parties to promote reconciliation, settlement or understanding among them. The Mediator may suggest ways of resolving the dispute, but may not impose her own judgment on the issues for that of the parties.
