A mediator can assist you to navigate the dispute and reach an agreement.
Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process where the parties are encouraged by a mediator to understand each other’s perspectives, talk through the issues, identify their mutual interests, develop realistic options, and find a solution that the parties can agree to.
- Consensual – reach an agreement that works for you
- Fixed fee available.
Before you commit to mediation, we will quote a fixed fee in most circumstances.
How mediation works
1. Get in touch
FairWay will guide you through the process of:
- engaging the other party
- appointing a mediator.
2. Individual meeting
The mediator will meet with you individually before the mediation to:
- gain an understanding of your situation
- answer any questions.
3. Preparation for mediation (optional)
The mediator may also offer and arrange a Preparation For Mediation (PFM) session for you which is designed to help you get the most from the mediated session.
This is a confidential and voluntary process where the mediator encourages everyone involved to:
- develop realistic options
- reach agreement together.
The joint mediation session usually takes place over a half-day. On reaching an agreement, the mediator will assist you to prepare a written agreement.
