“Divorce mediator near me” is a common query for a Google search when a couple is going through a separation and are wanting you to find out more about divorce mediation. The phrase does not mean what it once did as many divorce mediators are serving clients online.
Positive Solutions Divorce Service® has had online mediation services available for several years as it was an ideal solution for couples who lived in remote areas or were physically separated and it was challenge to schedule meetings. When the pandemic hit in early 2021, our company was forced to serve our clients exclusively online, due to the lock downs. Online mediation was so successful that after the restrictions were lifted, we chose to continue our meetings entirely online. This has been a benefit for our clients since we have been able to lower the costs of our overhead, and therefore, lower the costs for our clients.
Previously we had physical offices in all the major cities in Ontario, where clients could meet face to face with a mediator. Because people are now accustomed to doing business online, those offices have become redundant. We can now offer services to all residents of Ontario regardless of where they live.
Online mediation is a very effective process of meeting with the mediator. The only requirement is an internet connection. We use Zoom, a user-friendly technology that will work on any computer, tablet, or smartphone.
What are the benefits of online divorce mediation?
Online divorce mediation offers several benefits, including:
Convenience: It allows both parties to participate in the mediation process from the comfort of their own homes, without the need to travel.
Accessibility: It makes mediation more accessible to people who live in remote areas or have difficulty traveling.
Cost-effectiveness: It often eliminates the need for travel and reduces other expenses, making it a more affordable option.
Flexibility: It allows for scheduling sessions at any time that is convenient for both parties. Online mediation increases the availability of the mediators, as they do not need to be geographically close to participate in the process.
Privacy: It provides a confidential and secure platform for the mediation process, preserving privacy and confidentiality.
Reduced stress: It eliminates the need to appear in person, reducing the stress and anxiety associated with in-person mediation.
Timesaving: It eliminates the need to travel and wait for a physical meeting, saving time and allowing for more efficient use of time.
Improved Communication: The use of technology can improve communication and increase the accessibility of information, allowing for a smoother and more productive mediation process.
So, when you are searching for a mediator, the search term “divorce mediator near me” is not required.
