If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is to be flexible. We have all had to be flexible in our jobs, our parenting, changing our daily routines and adjusting to major changes to our social lives. Businesses have been forced to adjust as well and find new ways to reach clients. One thing that our team has done to respond to the new world we are in is to offer virtual mediation services to our clients. As the court system struggles with long wait times and masking, mediation offers a really effective alternative to settle the terms of a divorce.
Benefits Of Virtual Mediation
Virtual mediation gives clients the flexibility to complete mediation sessions from the comfort of your own home, without having to sit in the same room with your ex. This often allows for more productive and positive conversations. You can take a break during the session and be in your own environment, surrounded by your own things and not in an unfamiliar room with those with whom you are in conflict. Virtual mediation is also much easier to schedule than a court appearance with lawyers. You simply need to have an internet connection and a computer, tablet or phone. We generally use zoom for our mediation sessions. You also do not have to worry about being exposed to COVID or any other illness when you participate in virtual divorce mediation.
AMS Mediation has many years of experience providing high quality, compassionate and fair mediation services for couples all over Minnesota. We began offering virtual mediation services when the pandemic began and have found that they are equally as effective as in person mediation. We are able to help couples settle the terms of a divorce including division of assets and debt, determining a child custody plan as well as spousal maintenance and child support issues. All of this can be solved virtually. No commute, no drive to meetings, no courtrooms.
