What is Mediation?
Mediation is an alternative to resolving a civil dispute in court. In mediation, you and the party(s) to the dispute meet with a mediator who helps you negotiate all the issues you need to resolve to settle your dispute.
A mediator is a trained, neutral third party—often an experienced lawyer or retired judge—who acts as a facilitator while you and the other party(s) negotiate a resolution to your dispute. The mediator helps you discuss options for resolving various issues, so that you can come to a mutually agreed-upon resolution that is in everyone’s best interest.

Mediation can be used to resolve many types of civil disputes. Commonly mediated civil cases include those related to:

How Does a Dispute Enter Mediation?
If a judge, member of the court, or the parties themselves believe that a case will benefit from mediation, it can be referred to mediation at any point in the litigation process. The New Jersey Court system maintains a roster of qualified mediators from which a suitable candidate for your case can be selected.
If a settlement is reached in mediation, the parties will sign a written agreement that memorializes the settlement terms and agreement. The attorneys for the parties will then prepare the necessary paperwork to file with the court. This will ensure that any claim is paid, a release is signed, and the matter is resolved.
If a settlement isn’t reached in mediation, or if some issues are still unresolved, the parties can choose to engage in other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution or continue with the litigation process and take the case to trial.
