What is Mediation?

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=“transparent“ up=“35″ down=“0″][vc_column_text]Mediation is a voluntary procedure for an out-of-court settlement of a conflict. To come to an agreement, in mediation the disputants develop solutions to their conflict self-determinedly and autonomously with the help of a neutral.

Mediation is a procedure that leaves decision making power and freedom of choice to the parties. Because autonomy is left to the parties, they perceive mediation as a very fair procedure.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=“transparent“ up=“35″ down=“0″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]

6 Principles of Mediation

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=“transparent“ up=“35″ down=“0″]

Confidentiality

[vc_column_text]

Mediation is a strictly confidential procedure. Everything that is discussed in the context of mediation does not leave the space of mediation and may not be used in court.

[/vc_column_text]

Voluntary Nature

[vc_column_text]

Mediation is a voluntary process. Both parties must agree to the mediation in advance. The mediation can be terminated at any time by one of the parties.

[/vc_column_text]

Neutrality and Impartiality of the Mediator

[vc_column_text]

Mediation guarantees you impartiality of the mediator. This means equal treatment of all disputants.

[/vc_column_text]

Autonomy

[vc_column_text]

The parties control the process and decide on a potential solution. The mediator supports the negotiation process.

[/vc_column_text]

Knowledgeability

[vc_column_text]

In the course of the mediation the parties inform each other about their interests and can make informed decisions.

[/vc_column_text]

Results-openness

[vc_column_text]

Mediation is not determined to a certain result, but results-open, flexible and creative. The procedure is adapted to the needs of the parties.

[/vc_column_text]

[vc_separator type=“transparent“ up=“35″ down=“0″][vc_row_inner row_type=“row“ type=“full_width“ text_align=“left“ css_animation=““][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

Why Does Mediation Work?

[/vc_column_text]

You decide. Unlike a judge, the mediator does not impose a judgment on you.

This is your day. You are being listened to here. We take time for your case.

You yourself determine the course and content of the negotiation process.

Relationships are respected and not strained in court.

High procedural justice and resulting satisfaction.

Confidentiality of mediation provides you with safety.

You decide for yourself what and how much you want to reveal.

Mediation works, because you stand up for your own rights.
