In this context, conflicts about Business law, Commercial Law, Contract Law, Rent Law, Consumer Law etc. are suitable for Mediation unless they aren’t about the public order.
The parties can agree about the Mediation application before bringing a lawsuit or during a lawsuit. However, one of the parties can apply for Mediation and send the Mediation application offer to the other party. This offer is considered as rejected if the other party doesn’t reply during 30 (thirty) days.
The Mediation Law entered into force in Legal Disputes and currently is very often used.
At the end of the Mediation activity the parties document by a protocol prepared and signed by the Mediator that they agree, not agree or how resulted the mediation activity. This protocol is called as the Mediation Agreement Protocol and binding for the parties.
If the parties agree at the end of the Mediation activity it can be requested from the court to give an annotation for the enforceability of this agreement document. With taking this annotation the agreement protocol is regarded as court order and can be performed in this way.
The parties can decide about the amount of the fees and costs for each party. If they can not decide they will pay the fees and costs in half.
