What is mediation?
A mediator ought to offer an initial consultation at no charge to explain the mediation process, to help people decide if mediation is right for them, and to decide if they feel comfortable with the skills of that particular mediator.
Instead of hiding behind lawyers in a mutually destructive-and expensive-contest beyond one's ability to control, people in mediation become able to talk with a soon-to-be-ex-spouse and remain in control of their lives, their children and their money.
Mediators can make suggestions and proposals, but all decisions are made by you and your partner. The standard rules for mediation will apply in all cases. As a reminder to litigants, these rules will be provided before each mediation. An attorney or representative from each party will be asked to sign an agreement to be bound by these rules. Mediation: try it; you might like it.
In addition to the standard rules, keep in mind the following:
Every named party is expected to attend; Any organization or governmental entity may send a representative; Insured individuals should attend, when possible, and must attend if the insured is required to consent to any agreement or otherwise has control over settlement; Any insured who may be exposed to damages in excess of policy limits must attend and must be advised of whatever potential conflicts of interest may be inherent in attorney/ client relationships of an insured party; Intervenors must be present, by person and/or counsel, or a representative that has full authority to resolve the case unless other arrangements are made. Intervenors will be charged for the mediation, unless other arrangements are made. Generally, the case cannot be resolved unless the intervenor participates.

Can courts compel the use of ADR?
Commercial disputes involving monetary claims can only be brought before the court after mediation or the mandatory conciliation procedure. Non-compliance with this requirement may lead to the dismissal of the claim as inadmissible. If the parties did not attempt mediation before the initiation of the lawsuit, the court can recommend parties resort to mediation and can also request the parties to participate in a meeting where a mediator would inform the parties of the advantages of mediation.
MEDIATION IN PENAL
The Council of Europe adopted in 1999 one important legal instrument in order to stress the utility of the mediation in criminal matters. The Romanian legislator adopted in 2006 the Law no. 192 as the first regulation dedicated to the mediation field. According to the first article of this law, the mediation represents a form of solving the conflicts consensually, with the help of a third person specialized as a mediator, with respect or neutrality, impartiality, confidentiality and with the free will of the involved parties. In this law, the Chapter VI includes special provisions on conflict mediation, and, in its second section, the special rules on mediation in penal cases.
