    Mediation – general information:

    – one of the most effective and quick methods of resolving disputes,

    – a mediator is an impartial and neutral person who cares about the good of the parties, remains outside the dispute, does not make decisions for the parties as to how to resolve the dispute, helps the parties to voluntarily reach a solution to the disputes, alleviates tensions arising during mediation, helps the parties to regain mutual trust and rebuild mutual relationships,

    – basic principles of mediation: impartiality, voluntariness, confidentiality, neutrality and acceptability,

    – the parties, with the participation of the mediator, develop a method of agreement in the mediation process that is acceptable to both parties,

    – the parties to the dispute try to reach an agreement themselves to resolve it,

    – mediation is confidential and less formal than court proceedings,

    – mediation proceedings may be initiated by the parties (private mediation) or may be proposed or ordered by the court (judicial mediation),
