Mediation – Arbitration
Mediation-Arbitration is a hybrid of Mediation and Arbitration. The process begins with Meditation; however, in the event the parties cannot come to an agreement, any of the outstanding issues would be solved through Arbitration. This would mean that the Arbitrator could make finals decisions on all the outstanding issues. In most cases, the Mediator and Arbitrator are the same person.
Why should I use Mediation-Arbitration over Mediation or Arbitration?
Mediation-Arbitration allows the parties the initial opportunity to come to an agreement before having a neutral third party make any final decisions. It also allows both parties to move on faster with their lives, thus reducing the emotional and financial stress of going to court.
