  • The predictability of gains and losses is more in a mediated settlement unlike if the case is settled in the court by the third person.
  • Mediation allows participants to turn out the outcomes on their own that better suit their needs.
  • Through mediation services Adelaide, the parties get the chance to express themselves on a personal level without the fear of interrogation. Sometimes the other party must know how the conflicts have impacted the affected people.
  • Mediation is also a way to resolve the case more rapidly and at a cut-rate than going to court.
