Advantages of Conciliation


Prior to be prosecuted for the civil suit, party concerned can file for conciliation with the court, with the conciliation to be carried out at first by three conciliatory members at maximum selected by judge. If agreed by both parties concerned or deemed appropriate by judge, judges can conduct the conciliation. Having conciliation in amicable methods in the court enjoys a lot of advantages!

  1. Time-saving: For an appropriate declaration, the plaintiff shall present fact by giving evidence for judge’s investigation when filing complaints, while the defendant shall give defense and counterevidence as well. To investigate the naked truth of fact and make a fair judgment, judge shall investigate the information presented by both parties one by one based on procedures provided by laws prior to making correct verdict, consequently requiring several time- and cost-consuming court sessions inevitably. After the judgment made, the defeated suitor will appeal if he/she disagrees with the judgment, thus causing a frequent condition that confirmation of judgment for one civil suit will be final after involving in a tangled lawsuit. It would be the most time-saving method if disputes are settled through the procedures of conciliation by court.
  2. Money-saving: Fees to apply for conciliation are cheaper than judgment fees paid for the prosecution and, moreover, the plaintiff can file for a refund of half sum of the paid conciliatory fees after the conciliation is reached.
  3. Efficient: All judges and conciliatory members in this court are cordial and patient enough to hear opinions of the parties concerned by presenting one proposal which can be accepted by both parties, helping both parties reach conciliation and carry out automatic execution. Even though one party fail to carry out the execution automatically after the conciliation is reached, the other party can use the written transcript of conciliation directly to file for the forcible execution as the established conciliation has the same validity to confirmation of judgment, thus helping carry out the rights rapidly and efficiently.
  4. No after-effect: As parties concerned of the suit settle their disputes by amicable methods, there would have no any complaint or disgruntlement after the conciliation is reached that both parties can lead their peaceful life continuously. Even failing to reach the conciliation, persuasion by conciliatory members or judges and the statements or concession by parties concerned during the conciliatory procedures would not be adopted as the basis of judgment for the lawsuit procedures, and, consequently, there would have no any harmful after-effect.
