Many things have gone back to normal after the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, but, for many, online meetings have remained a part of everyday life. If you work in an office setting, you may still even be working from home some days and have virtual meetings regularly. This was very unusual before 2020, but the reality is that there are some huge benefits to online meetings that have made it possible and even desirable to keep meetings in this format. Johnson Mediation moved to online divorce mediation sessions during the pandemic to help families successfully navigate the divorce process when meeting in person was considered potentially risky because of health concerns.
Benefits Of Virtual Divorce Mediation
The online mediation process is very similar to the in-person sessions. Your mediator serves the identical function. He/she does not make the decisions related to your divorce case but leads you in a positive and productive discussion that can empower you and your ex to work together to find solutions to issues such as dividing joint property, child custody and spousal maintenance and/or child support options. So, the focus of each meeting is exactly the same. You can expect to participate in 3-4 two-hour mediation sessions spread out over the course of 6-8 weeks and you can expect to reach resolution on all aspects of your divorce case. The primary differences are that you can complete online mediation from the comfort of your own home, with no travel time and no need to see your ex in person. This can take some of the pressure off of both parties in the process and ultimately result in an even more positive result for all parties.
