Mediation can help you resolve the problem that has brought you to court. The best resolution to any problem is usually one worked out by the people involved. Through mediation, people often arrive at a resolution more quickly than by going to trial and asking a judge to decide their cases. Mediation is an informal process, although the mediator does structure the discussion. Most people find it a comfortable and productive procedure. Many people prefer to take an active part in solving their own problem, rather than waiting for a judge or jury to impose a solution.
