How promising is a settlement reached through fairsöhnlich?

If you decide on mediation, then you have opted for dialogue instead of confrontation, which means that you already have taken a first step to an amicable solution. The rate at which people agree is rather amazing, once you have made the decision to talk to one another: 80% of all mediations are successful. While it may not always be possible to reach agreement on all points, you will be fairer and more forgiving with one another in the future. This is often experienced as a great relief.
