Civil Mediation

How The Process Works

Civil mediation covers a wide range of disputes, such as property, contractual, injury, insurance, clinical, housing, neighbours, and special educational needs.

The mediation process consists of two stages. The first meeting is the MIAM (Mediation Information Assessment Meeting). The meeting lasts between 30 and 45 minutes and serves as an information gathering exercise to determine whether mediation is appropriate in each case. The meetings take place individually and at different times.

If the dispute is not suitable for mediation, it is certified as such by the mediator.

If the dispute is suitable, then a date and time for the mediation are set.

The length of the mediation process is determined by the individual circumstances. Parties are free to leave and terminate a mediation at any time.

When an agreement is reached, it is usually written down and signed by all parties.

If the mediation is not successful, the mediator will certify that it failed.

The parties are not expected to meet during the mediation, with the mediator serving as the channel of communication. The parties can meet if they agree, but it is not required.
