Typically, a Mediator assists both parties to work together to reach a shared agreement. Unlike the legal process, a resolution is not made by a Magistrate and imposed on one or both parties. The role of the Mediator is as a neutral third party who facilitates discussion and helps to works towards an amicable agreement without the need for Court.
