To put it in a nutshell, mediation is an alternate method to resolve disputes out of court. Rather than a judge or magistrate, a mediator is present to advice and helps you reach a suitable outcome.
You need to tell the mediator about your requirements and expectations, so they can steer you towards the end result without hassles. It is an arrangement to seat both parties a safe and secure environment, so the dispute is resolved quickly and peacefully. It saves them the hassle of going to court, and you don’t need to shell out expensive court fees.
Mediation can involve matrimonial/de facto disputes regarding property and/or children, domestic violence, commercial disputes involving contracts or entitlements, and disputes regarding neighborhoods, workplaces, commercial leasing, wills & estates, intellectual property, etc.
