How Much Time Is Required To Schedule A Mediation?

Generally speaking, the parties themselves determine the scheduling of mediation, unlike in the court system where the "court docket" and relevant court rules define the time parameters for each stage of a case. Thus, the mediation process is generally much speedier than the litigation process, with timing of mediations dependent only upon the availability of the parties, any representatives attending the mediation, and the mediator him or herself.
