Wouldn’t everyone like finding their own resolution for their own conflict?
As an honorable alternative within legal system we live in: we call it now Mediation.
In event of a dispute there are several aspects automatically taken off the scenario once we delegate the case to Courts.
Legal representatives wipe off all non-objective matters to make cases strong to stand in Court.
However, emotions, fears, requests, expectations may find correspondence and support somewhere in the dense and rich network of Civil Law codes, regulations and principles. Same chances they may have within the mare magnum of Common Law cases history and collections.
Keeping in mind that where each little detailed request gets under Court consideration, they may slow down the whole process of obtaining justice by final sentencing.
If all personal feelings stay out of the Court dispute, however, they seldom disappear from our day-to-day lives; if unheard, they last as long as the Court case ends. Or longer
Time is money.
Time is money to all: parties and representatives.
It is worth it to mention as well that each complaint formally brought to Court becomes public. As consequence, this choice impacts privacy and reputation: how valuable are they to the parties?
Quality of life and relationship are entirely at parties’ (i.e. disputants’) disposal: it is their own life quality at stake.
It is up to the disputants how to treasure their standards of quality.
Mediation process works on those values, considering them closely together with the real interests to be evaluated.
Expert and professional mediators facilitate the disputants’ pattern of clear communication. Assist along the whole process ensuring all requests and expectations are on the table to be heard and worked out towards an agreement.
Mediators are equi-distant o equi-close to both parties, rather than super partes.
Mediation stays neutral and non judgmental before and after a solid, valuable and professional initiative towards solutions the parties themselves may be well able to figure out, handle and finally manage.
Parties keep all the time control of their goals and mediation may save time, money and values after all.
Terms of an agreement may be reasonably reached before any external interference or order from Court. There is no need to publicly disclose their feelings. To any public.
Encouraged by professional mediators, bound to code of conduct, privacy and confidentiality, as a result, are guaranteed to the disputants by their own honorable agreement.
Finally I feel to add a priceless extra value: mediation process brings parties through a self-management of their mutual relationship.
A professional mediation helps all parties adapt their agreement to their own circumstances, creating reasonable solutions within legal frame.
It teaches how to better manage their wishes and values for life.
One own’s justice is a tailored suit: it fits better
