We are living through an extremely difficult time. The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted life for everyone in the United States in many different ways, and we will all be relieved when the disease no longer poses such a threat to our health and the health of our loved ones. As stressful as things have been for so many of us, though, there have been a number of silver linings. One silver lining is that we have learned that it is possible to duplicate the quality of many interpersonal interactions in the online world. Johnson Mediation is able to offer our clients the same degree of professionalism and expertise in online mediation as in our in-person sessions.
Can Online Mediation Be As Effective As In Person?
Strong mediation hinges on good communication, and this is even more important when you move from an in-person format to an online format. Divorce mediation begins with the collection of information and documents that are relevant to the couple (information about assets, debts, property, etc.). Your mediator’s role is to listen and understand the issues as presented by the parties who have decided to divorce. Meeting in person is not absolutely necessary to achieving the goals of thorough information gathering and the mediator’s absorption of the information shared by the divorcing couple. This is especially true with the threat of spreading COVID-19. Johnson Mediation wants you and your family to stay safe so we have transitioned our services online so that we can continue to meet your needs during the pandemic.
