Mediation has always been the cost effective way to work out disputes with neighbours, work colleagues and family members. The Queensland Government recently reported that they have handled more than 52,000 disputes over the last 25 years. By taking these issues to mediation the costs and impacts on the community have been reduced, with less cases proceeding to court.
Mediation has been able to provide a faster and simpler way to settle disputes outside courts. There are courts/tribunals that actually have mandatory dispute resolution requirements whereby parties involved in the dispute need to show evidence of attempted mediation before proceeding to court.
