Area of Practice
Mediated Solutions' area of practice is defined by the Rules of North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission (DRC) and the agreement of the parties. Services cannot be made available to individual parties as opposed to all parties in a conflict. Options for settlement procedures are identified fully on the Services page and may be adapted to parties' needs and preferences. Supreme Court Rules for settlement procedures and other valuable information are available on the DRC website. Statutory authorization under The Family Law Arbitration Act, NCGS 50-41 et seq., is reviewed in the NCBA Family Law Section handbook here. Engagement and process are upon the parties' agreement.
Summary trial most closely simulates litigation experience and outcomes while allowing parties to define their own jury or bench trial under self-determined scheduling and rules of process. Options include advisory decisions.
Mediation is an informal process conducted by a mediator with the objective of helping parties voluntarily settle their dispute, encouraging and facilitating a resolution, but not rendering a judgement as to the merits of the dispute.
Arbitration is an abbreviated form of a trial with less formal process, and includes options of a binding or non-binding arbitration, in which a neutral renders a decision following summary presentations of the case.
Neutral evaluation is an informal, abbreviated presentation of facts and issues by the parties to an evaluator, who may identify strengths and weaknesses of the case, likely outcomes, and possibilities for settlement.
