Divorce mediation offers numerous advantages over litigation. For example, divorce mediation moves more quickly than litigation, taking a few short weeks instead of years. It is also cheaper; and instead of requiring an expensive retainer, we give clients the opportunity to pay as they go, allowing them to schedule meetings in a way that works for their budgets. The mediation process is confidential; it gives more control over the process to the couple; and it promotes a better relationship for you and your family going forward.
Since March, the Coronavirus has forced us to move our practice online, and we have seen many of the benefits of online or virtual mediation. Online mediation allows couples to participate in divorce mediation without having to be in the same room – or even the same state – which reduces conflict. In addition, it opens up better scheduling options since no travel or babysitting is required. Moreover, the tech part is simple – you can participate on any device, including your phone. Overall, virtual mediation allows couples to take advantage of the many benefits of divorce mediation with several added conveniences.
