Research on the Family Cases Pre-litigation Mediation System
Wen Yunyun;Chen Aiwu;
Since China launched a pilot program concerning family cases pre-litigation mediation, all levels of courts involved have actively promoted the mediation procedure, yet the results are varied. In practice, there are problems that the scope of cases appropriate for mediation is not clear, the mediation is ill-organized, and the procedures lack coordination. Therefore, based on the actual need, China should improve the system of family cases pre-litigation mediation as soon as possible, define the scope of family cases to be mediated, standardize the mediation organizations, and scientifically design the procedure for coordinating family cases mediation and court trial, so as to smoothly and properly resolve the family cases.
