Online Mediation Via Zoom – Resolving Children’s Arrangements
Mediation has traditionally been conducted in face to face meetings with a mediator. Over the last five years or so, with new technology available and separated couples living further apart, online video mediation has become much more widely used. And of course, with COVID-19 affecting us globally throughout 2020, the need for all mediation to be online has furthered that switch to video and online mediation.
This case study demonstrates that online mediation not only works but it can be much easier process for the separating couple. Apart from the fact that couples would rather not see each other in the flesh after separation, it is can also be better for mediation about children’s issues in particular because it reduces the emotion of seeing the other person.
