Mediation is a confidential process used to resolve disputes outside of court. InstaCourt® offers mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution to help people resolve legal disagreements and avoid the expense and time of court hearings and trials. We offer traditional "facilitative" mediation, in which an attorney assists the parties in negotiating an agreement. This process usually takes five to 10 hours and can usually be completed in less than 30 days. We also offer "evaluative" mediation, in which the mediator provides a confidential assessment that usually helps the parties negotiate a settlement. With the experienced attorneys at InstaCourt®, mediation is a highly effective alternative to litigation in court.
Unlike mediation, neutral resolution is an automatically binding process in which the parties agree to have their case resolved by an attorney, who acts as a court-appointed temporary judge. In neutral resolution, the parties are not required to reach an agreement, and the case will be decided outside of court based on the facts and law. Whereas mediation works well with parties who can engage in constructive dialogue, neutral resolution is designed for situations where disagreements are sufficiently entrenched that a mutual agreement has become impractical and unlikely. Also known as "private judging," this process is well suited to cases where privacy, efficiency and speed of resolution are important.
The referee process is similar to neutral resolution and is often used for specific issues. A referee is often used where the parties have only a limited disagreement that may involve one or more complex or technical issues requiring a level of expertise. This may involve business or property valuations, accounting issues, business disputes, child custody or parenting decisions, or landlord-tenant disputes. In most instances, a referee does not need to be a licensed attorney and need only have the credentials and experience necessary to assist the parties.
