Managing the necessary amendments and amendments to the agreement can allay the concerns of the parties. The possibility of revision shows that it is possible to change what has been defined. This reinforces the idea that mediation is not mandatory. The review gives a desire for credibility to the process. The revision can also show whether the final agreement will last the time by revealing the actual intentions of a party. (i) the person signed the agreement for mediation; (ii) that the information is otherwise public; or (iii) the person to whom the information is disclosed is a legal or financial advisor to a party in this agreement.9 The parties will have lawyers present at the mediation. The Ombudsman will not legally represent or advise a party and has no obligation to assert or protect a party`s legal rights and obligations, not to address an issue raised by the parties themselves, or to determine who should participate in mediation. 4. Confidentiality: Mediation is a transaction negotiation and will be strictly confidential. No party may disclose the statements of other participants in mediation. Mediation interviews, written and oral communications, proposals and unsigned comparative agreements are not permitted in court proceedings.
Unless the parties are approved, the Ombudsman will not disclose confidential information provided by a part of the Ombudsman. The parties agree not to call the mediator as a witness for mediation or to provide documents from mediation in any legal proceeding. The only circumstances that allow the Ombudsman to violate confidentiality are: 1) if he reasonably believes that another person is in danger of harm or has well-founded suspicions of child abuse that the law requires of him; 2) if necessary, to defend itself in all legal actions; 3) where the contracting parties collectively waive confidentiality in writing; or 4) as required by law. The parties authorize the mediator to submit the ADR reports requested by the Court of Appeal. A written agreement is not necessarily the barometer of successful mediation.
