Mediators must obtain registration and to do that demonstrate they have the necessary skills to be appointed as a Registered Mediator.  They can also specialise in their area of expertise.

Why use mediation

Undergoing a conciliation process is now a mandatory process in many areas of litigation.  All avenues of reconciliation of a dispute need to be exhausted before the Courts will accept a case for hearing.

The Dispute Resolution process is a far less expensive process than litigation.

It should be far less stressful than going to Court.
