Mediation provides the opportunity to settle your dispute without going to court and leaving it up to the judge. Parties can use mediation before a lawsuit is even filed. Often some if not all issues can be settled in a good faith mediation. Parties and their attorneys, if represented, come to mediation ready to explain how they want the matter resolved. Sometimes there are issues that both parties actually agree on. Also, there may be issues that can be resolved through compromise, give and take. Are you willing to give up this, in order to get that? This opportunity is not available in the courtroom.
The mediator typically shuttles between the parties sharing offers and counteroffers as you get closer to resolution, or it is obvious that you are too far apart to reach an agreement. The mediator can also clarify and explain the other party’s position and expectations.
If a lawsuit is already filed, Colorado courts require mediation before the case can go to trial. You can use mediation to settle divorce or custody cases.
If you have already been to court but one party is not following the court’s order, you probably have to mediate before going back to court.
