Mediation in Slovakia is an informal, voluntary and confidential procedure for resolving conflicts out of court by using a mediator. The aim of mediation is to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both parties.
The agreement resulting from the mediation procedure must be set down in writing. It applies primarily to the parties involved in the agreement and is binding on them. On the basis of the agreement, the entitled party may apply for judicial enforcement of the decision or for distraint, providing that the agreement is:
a) drawn up in the form of a notarial act;
b) endorsed as conciliation in court by an arbitral body.
If no mediation agreement is reached, the matter can be pursued in court.
The Slovak mediators‘ database is owned and maintained by the Slovak Ministry of Justice.
