Virtual Mediation
Mediation works for almost anyone — even family members who live in different areas. Once limited by geography, mediation can now bridge long distances, thanks to technology. Virtual mediation allows parties to communicate with a mediator and one another via conference call, Skype, or similar technologies. Long-distance mediation can now be used in virtually any situation; as long as you have access to a phone or high-speed internet, you can utilize virtual mediation successfully.

Virtually Anyone Can Use Virtual Mediation

At Advanced Mediation Services (AMS), we have in-depth experience with divorce and family law, business and workplace, elder care, and other types of mediation. We also have in-house experts that can be called upon when needed to help with certain parts of the process. AMS has two offices in New Jersey, and with our virtual mediation option, we are able to bring parties together (for mediation sessions) from anywhere in the world.

Mediation sessions have traditionally required both parties to be in the same physical location. These days, virtual mediation is becoming a more preferred option; allowing AMS to facilitate the sessions remotely. This method can be used for all types of mediation, including but not limited to:

There are many circumstances in which the parties may prefer virtual mediation over a face to face meeting. Some of the most common follow.

Long-Distance Divorces

Virtual divorce mediation can easily accommodate couples that no longer reside in the same area. Through ever-improving technology, virtual sessions can conveniently facilitate discussions between two long-distance spouses. Virtual mediation can be a good option for military families where one spouse is stationed on another continent. This process is also used a lot in divorces where one spouse travels frequently for business, making it more difficult to schedule sessions at a physical location.

Multi-Party Mediation

There are some instances when there are multiple parties whose input would be valued during mediation. For example, you may want to include adult children, parents or other family members who live out of state in an elder care or estate settlement mediation session. Attorney-assisted divorce mediation may be another circumstance in which it is more practical to conduct remote sessions because of the various parties involved.

The Need for Enhanced Comfort

It may be that the parties involved in a mediation are in the same geographic area, but they are not totally comfortable being in the same room (or even in the same building) together. Virtual sessions can be conducted in a more comfortable setting that might make it easier to put together a settlement that is acceptable to all sides.
