If you are ready to get a divorce, you may be considering mediation. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has opened up a whole new world to online/telephone mediation that may make your divorce far easier on you, your spouse, and your children. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Massachusetts divorce attorney today to learn more.
Should I consider having my divorce mediated online?
There are many potential benefits of having your divorce mediated online, as opposed to in person. Some of these benefits are as follows:
- You can be as comfortable as you need to be. This is a big deal. Of course, mediation itself is generally a less stressful process than a litigated divorce, however, having to follow directions to meet somewhere you perhaps have never been before may make certain people feel on edge. When having your divorce mediated from home, however, you can simply pour yourself a cup of coffee, dress comfortably, and enjoy the familiarity of your surroundings, thereby allowing you to have a clearer head when moving forward with the process and negotiating with your spouse and a compassionate mediator.
- You do not have to travel. By choosing online divorce mediation, you will not have to worry about rushing around, ensuring you make it to your appointment on time. You also will not have to worry about the session running a little longer, as you and your children will presumably already be home. Online mediation should give you total peace of mind so you may focus solely on your mediation session.
How to Prepare For Online Divorce Meditation
There are several steps you can take to prepare for your mediation sessions. First and foremost, ensure you have a quiet, comfortable spot to sit, and that the spot has strong wifi. This means ensuring your children are quiet, in another room, and that you will not have to get up for any reason other than a quick bathroom break if necessary. You should bring snacks, reading glasses, beverages, tissues, and a notepad so you will have everything you need to proceed. You can also bring any documents/records that you feel are relevant.
