The mediation procedure is determined by its structure:
First of all, the parties need to decide whether they consider mediation the right option. Then the terms of cooperation are defined in an agreement.
2. Presentation of issues
Each party is given the opportunity to state its case. The mediator draws up a list of all issues requiring resolution.
3. Consideration of interests
Under the guidance of the mediator, the parties develop proposals for a resolution of all issues considering all interests involved.
4. Solution options
On this basis, the parties evaluate those solutions they consider to be fair and appropriate.
5. Settlement agreement
The proposals are recorded in a document and signed by all parties. They now become legally binding.
