Can Divorce Mediation Take Place Online?

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a great deal of changes in everyone’s day to day life throughout the state of New Jersey. Due to temporary court closures, this meant spouses gearing up for a divorce had to put their plans on hold. However, it is important to know that it is possible to still move forward with these plans during this time, just through alternative options. For example, online divorce mediation. There are many benefits to this process for spouses who are able to do so. Continue reading below to learn more and contact our New Jersey divorce mediators to see how we can help you. 

Why Should I Use Online Mediation?

There are various benefits to divorcing through online mediation, including the following:

  • You can stay in the comfort of your home. When divorcing through litigation, it requires you to go to court. This can be uncomfortable for many, as it requires you to discuss personal matters in an unfamiliar place. On the other hand, online divorce mediation allows you to take part in peaceful conversations from a place you are familiar with. Doing so lets you have access to stress relievers that are comfortable as you work with a compassionate mediator.  
  • You can eliminate travel worries. Online divorce mediation takes away the time-consuming matters of traveling to and from a courtroom. By taking part in this, you do not have to worry about the time it takes you to get to and from the locations necessary to complete your divorce. Instead, online divorce mediation allows you to focus solely on your divorce. 

How do I Prepare for Online Mediation?

When you are preparing to meet with an experienced New Jersey divorce mediator, it is important to implement steps that allow you to get the most out of the process as possible. This can start with finding a comfortable and private space within your home to conduct the meetings. This should preferably be a spot with strong wifi so that you do not experience any technical difficulties. In addition to this, be sure any children you have will be distracted during your meetings with the mediator. This allows you to be fully present and not preoccupied. Be sure to have any drinks, snacks, tissues, or paper that may be needed so you do not have to get up unnecessarily during a meeting.
