Mediation

Mediation

Some lawyers can act as authorised mediators, possibly as part of judicial pleadings, in four kinds of cases: family law, civil, commercial and social matters.

What do lawyer-mediators do?
Mediators help the parties reach a joint conclusion and find the right solution to the conflict between them.

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential procedure to resolve a conflict, with the mediator guiding the negotiations between the parties involved.

Some lawyers can act as recognised mediators. In the section below, you will find a list of approved mediators in family law, commercial and social law.

You can find a list of all mediators and their contact details on www.juridat.be/bemiddeling.

Mediation in family law

Mediation offers many benefits in family matters, including:

  • Mediation is carried out at the pace of both parties, with attention for their personalities.
  • Mediators ensure that children do not become the victims of parental conflicts.
  • The partners work out a balanced settlement by themselves, without any decisions being made that they may not want
  • Solutions that people reach by working together, provide a better guarantee for the future.

Mediation is a fast, effective and economic way of resolving conflicts.
