HOW TO SELECT A MEDIATOR

It is imperative that the mediator you choose is well qualified and experienced. Use as much mediation information that you can get before selecting. At the moment in Ireland any person can call themselves a mediator. Thus, you need to set criteria for evaluating a mediator.

So ask your mediator if they are accredited and have insurance and a practising certificate. All of our mediators at http://www.mediationinsteadofcourt.ie are fully accredited and have a diploma in mediation as well as being solicitors.

They don’t give legal advice but you would have the benefit of their legal experience from practising as lawyers.

Many mediators will be happy to talk to you on the phone about their services and give you lots of mediation information that you may require

 

How much experience does your mediator have and other mediation information

This is crucial in trying to find a suitable mediator. I have been mediating for a number of years in a wide number of areas and am aware parties are placing trust and confidence in a me. It is vital that you can rest assured of their ability to assist you find a suitable outcome. So ask your mediator if they are experienced before you hire them. Ask them are they accredited and how many mediations have they done.

Eventhough, separation mediation and divorce mediation are rapidly growing areas you might find it hard to find a mediator in your locality. We serve all of Ireland and other areas upon request. We can travel to your local area to help you resolve your difficulties.

 

How would you (as a mediator) deal with deadlock or stalemate in a mediation?

It is important that your mediator will give you and the other party enough room to explore your areas of disagreement and conflict thoroughly. This is necessary so that you don’t settle now for something that you might regret later or break down at some point in the future.

Gender of the mediator

If you both sense that you can trust the mediator and that he or she can help you both reach an agreement, then you have found the right mediator. If the process works for you, you will be able to look back on the mediation process as one of your accomplishments. With help from a third person, you have found a way together to separate or divorce or even reconcile.

In my experience, being a female I am keen to ensure the man feels at ease that he does not feel like my neutrality is compromised and indeed at the same time I need to be fair to both parties.

Cost

An experienced mediator knowledgeable about the law will charge more than one who is less qualified, but she or he will be more valuable to you and more efficient in conducting the mediation. You will benefit from their years of experience. Use this article and the mediation information provided within to choose your mediator.

Retainers

Another aspect when choosing your mediator can be if they charge a retainer. While you will avoid the high retainers which solicitors require (usually a few thousand euro). Because mediation costs less, mediators require smaller retainers if they require them at all. If your mediator does require a retainer be sure to get agreement that he or she will refund any unused portion to you both.
