Best Time for Mediation?

Mediation is appropriate at any stage of conflict! It is never too late! Some parties use mediation proactively. For instance, if parties anticipate a problem arising in the near future, they may use mediation to facilitate a dialogue and agree ahead of time as to how that problem will be handled. Other parties insert mediation clauses into their agreement, providing for the mediation of future conflicts.

As an example all contracts with the California Association of Realtors, call out for Mediation in a Dispute.

Buyer- seller and landlord-tenant contracts.

Most often, parties contact a mediator when they recognize a conflict has arisen and is not going to go away.

Mediation often starts as a gateway from a law office.

There is very little to lose in doing so, and so much to gain.

Repeatedly, parties surprise one another and, even in the midst of litigation, engage in mediation to a successful agreement.

Jim W Hildreth of Real Estate Mediation Services, schedules Mediations 6 days per week and Saturday or eveing hours are designed for the convenience of the disputants.

Often partners or working couples find it difficult to take a half day off during the work week.

Mediation is appropriate and any time.
