Mediation is an alternative to having your case heard in Court.
It can be quicker, less stressful and less expensive than a Court hearing. The intention of mediation is that both sides should be able to come to an agreement to settle the case or resolve an issue rather than go through a potentially lengthy, stressful and costly Court proceeding.
Applying for mediation
Legal Aid is available for mediation and this should be considered when the application is submitted to the Legal Aid Office.
Either party can apply to the Court for mediation.
In your application you should state:
- The name and address of the person you wish to be mediator, both parties must agree to that person being the mediator
- The date on which the mediation will take place
- The documents each party wants to be given to the mediator
- Any application for mediation must be made with the written consent of both parties
