Family Mediation Online, also known as ODR or Online Dispute Resolution
Family Mediation Online is good for:
- clients who are too geographically distant to enable a meeting to take place.
- people in small communities where access to mediation services are non-existent.
- those who need to resolve a small matter with time efficiency
- where disputes have sensitivities that a meeting would be either risky or uncomfortable.
- disputes where one party cannot attend a meeting due to a severe disability.
If you and your spouse have decided to separate and would like to consider mediation as an alternative process, to work towards your separation agreement, but you find it difficult to meet in one location, you may want to consider family mediation online as a solution. Family mediation online feels just like a face-to-face mediation where we use technology to bring us together, using the same process protocols as if you were both in the same room.
Parenting Plans and Financial Disclosure
Family mediation online still allows you and your spouse to make joint decisions for your family’s future. All the legal documents are prepared by your mediator and shared with both spouses for a cost-effective alternative to court or traditional litigation. Parenting Plans are negotiated, with the help of your mediator, to ensure that all your legal requirements are considered. Financial disclosure is prepared, on the necessary legal forms, that is required to grant your divorce. Disclosure briefs are created to help you organize your legal documents in a way that make it easy to apply for a divorce. All of these items are created by sharing information digitally, and by negotiating, using platforms that allow the mediator to guide clients to resolution.
All the benefits of mediation are maintained including conflict reduction, both spouses making decisions that work for them and their children, reduced cost as well as control over the outcome.
