What are the courts views on Mediation?

November 1, 2020by ra123456

Universally and so also in India, the courts acknowledge the important role being played by mediation. In fact, in many complex commercial cases and domestic cases like divorce, custody etc, court-ordered mediation has become the norm. Most developed nations have turned to mediation as the first-step dispute resolution method. Many trial courts abroad have established parallel mediation programs to try to resolve civil disputes. In fact, in some countries, mediation is mandatory in many cases and a judge may order parties to mediate wherein they are required to appear in at least one session or risk being held in contempt. The results are very encouraging because there is great deal of mutuality in such cases and amicability is a precursor to long term implementation. The workload of the courts has also reduced drastically because of such an approach.

I have worked with the Seek Mediation team for quite a while. They have always far exceeded my expectations. Simply put, they are a world class outfit.


We just cannot believe it.  Our family dispute had been lingering for the last one decade. Got resolved in four sessions!

I have worked with mediation consultants before, but I have never seen a group which is so dedicated and committed to their cause. Very professional indeed.


I never knew disputes could be resolved so easily and economically. At the end of the day, it was win-win for all of us.
