Mediation experts in Bulgaria
- Mediation is a type of alternative dispute resolution in which parties voluntarily endeavour to resolve their dispute with the help of a third party, i.e. a mediator. The parties’ willingness to reach a settlement is paramount to the success of mediation. Courts actively encourage mediation.There is no obligation on the parties to mediate and, even though mediation clauses are binding, they are not easily enforced. Mediation is voluntary. However, refusal to mediate could mean that courts might award costs against you.
- You can have mediation at any stage before or during court proceedings.
- Your legal rights are unaffected. This means that if you can’t reach agreement, you can still revert to court proceedings. Mediation can be used to supplement legal proceedings in civil and administrative cases, even when a lawsuit has already started. At the suggestion of the judge, or at the request of the parties themselves, the parties come together under the guidance of a competent, independent mediator to try to resolve the dispute.
- Mediation is confidential and ‘without prejudice’. That means that nothing said in the mediation is admissible as evidence in legal proceedings.
- Any settlement reached is legally binding once put into writing and signed by the parties. Every court has a mediation office. This office provides information about mediation, works with the parties to see if mediation is right for them, offers support with the decision to involve a mediator and arranges the initial mediation session.
