It is important to know what a mediator is if you are going through a legal process. They will help you get through disputes and try to help you resolve your conflict. Going to a mediator is cheaper than having to spend a lot of money on something like a divorce. Mediators help with everything except criminal cases. So if you are having a business or civil dispute, or getting a divorce, you should contact a mediator first before getting into all the legal trouble. They will help you as best as they can and it is beneficial in the long run.
