Mediation is a process where a mediator helps parties with a disagreement see if an agreement can be reached. The mediator cannot force the parties to come to an agreement, the agreement must be voluntary. In contrast, a judge’s ruling on a matter is legally binding. Additionally, mediation services are more cost-effective than lawsuits and mediation can be less stressful than going to court.
