Mediation has always been a highly effective and efficient way to resolve the terms of your divorce without the stress and expense of a court battle. In fact, in the state of Minnesota, mediation has always been a recommended way of resolving issues like division of property, child custody and child/spousal support. Even in normal times, the court system cannot accommodate all of the divorce cases in a timely manner. Over the last few years, however, with the emergence of COVID-19, it has become even more difficult to schedule court dates for divorce proceedings. As a result, mediators have adapted to the health situation and moved from in person mediation sessions to virtual (or online) mediation. Johnson Mediation has led the way in this effort to meet the needs of our clients.
Benefits Of Virtual Divorce Mediation
Virtual mediation allows you to settle the terms of your divorce from the comfort of your own home. You do not have to find a time to meet in a neutral location, get ready, drive to/from and plan for a day away from home. Virtual mediation only requires an internet connection and a computer, tablet or other device. You can log on at a certain time, keep your notes, coffee and favorite pet right next to you as you discuss the terms of your divorce settlement. You are comfortable, flexible and minimize the time you spend during the process. Just like in-person mediation, virtual mediation is dramatically less expensive than litigation, saving you thousands of dollars during the process.
