What is Virtual or Online Mediation?
Virtual or Online Mediation is a process by which parties can settle their issues and disputes online, without the need for an in-person mediation session. Meetings are conducted by video or teleconference, and any form of document submission is facilitated through separate private e-mail communication.
Sharing of Private Information:
Financial information can be and is shared separately, outside of the conference platform. A mediator can explain exactly the documents needed to be exchanged between the parties/spouses themselves prior to the virtual session, and documents that may be needed for the mediator to extract essential information.
What we need to protect our privacy during the online mediation process:
Private internet access is the most important tool needed to ensure the privacy of the discussions. Some of the platforms available for use are Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Zoom to name a few. CT Mediation uses Microsoft Teams due to recent privacy issues with Zoom.
The Convenience of online mediation has afforded numerous couples the opportunity to resolve their issues and finalize the divorce process virtually. Parties can choose times that work best for everyone and are able to conference in from anywhere. Some spouses reside in different states, some can not or do not want to be in the same room, some are unable to travel, or just prefer the comfort of their own home or office, so online mediation can be an effective solution for divorce mediations.
