Mediation at a glance
Courts actively encourage mediation. Mediation is voluntary. However, refusal to mediate could mean that courts might award costs against you. You can have mediation at any stage before or during court proceedings. Your legal rights are unaffected. This means that if you can’t reach agreement, you can still revert to court proceedings. Mediation is confidential and ‘without prejudice’. That means that nothing said in the mediation is admissible as evidence in legal proceedings. Any settlement reached is legally binding once put into writing and signed by the parties.
