A mediation is often conducted by an attorney. The parties are placed in separate rooms at the mediator’s office. The mediator travels between the rooms, to relay the parties’ positions. A mediator with war experience can be helpful in giving the parties a feel for what might happen in the courtroom. The mediation is only as good as the mediator. If the parties reach an agreement, a settlement document is drafting and signed on the spot. This is called a “mediated settlement agreement” also called an MSA. Once this is signed, you cannot change it or renegotiate it. Anything said in the mediation is confidential and cannot be brought up in court later. So, it is important to go into mediation prepared.
