Online Mediation

Online Mediation

Online mediation is a way to resolve family disputes using a video conferencing platform like Zoom. It is a convenient and effective way to mediate disputes, regardless of where the parties live.

Benefits of Online Mediation

  • Convenient: The parties do not have to travel to attend mediation, which can save time and money.
  • Flexible: The mediation can be held at a time that is convenient for the parties, and they can participate from anywhere in the world.
  • Confidential: The mediation is held in a private setting, and the mediator is bound by confidentiality.
  • Effective: Online mediation has been shown to be as effective as traditional mediation in resolving disputes.

How does Online Mediation work?

The mediation process is essentially the same as traditional mediation. The parties meet with a mediator, who helps them to communicate and negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement. The only difference is that the mediation is held online.

This is so convenient if you are able to spare an hour in your lunchtime at work if there is a confidential space you can use, or if you work away from home.  We can even offer evening appointments when our offices are closed.
