What are the benefits to online remote family mediation?


It may be sometime before we are able to safely hold family mediation sessions without social distancing rules in place. With that in mind, we explore the benefits or online family mediation.

Of course, the option to mediate remotely was in place prior to the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent restrictions, but, now that we are all getting familiar with remote meetings, the benefits are clear for all to see.

Conducting your family mediation online saves you time and money

There are in fact a number of benefits to online remote family mediation, one of which is a cost saving. So, for example, if you were meeting face to face, you would have travel expenses, maybe some travel costs, car parking, et cetera, but also, there would be time for travel, so all of that is saved.

Making family mediation more flexible

You can conduct the meetings from the comfort of your own home or venue of your choice, at a time that’s most convenient to you, and you can even join from abroad, if necessary. So, there’s no doubt that the use of online remote mediation does increase the ability to conduct mediation flexibly, in fact.

Relieve some of the stress and anxiety of family mediation

One might say that to conduct this online may limit stress. Now, mediation is not easy, but often, stress may be brought on by you feeling anxious that you need or might come into contact with the other party, and this may be fairly daunting for you, and undesirable. Now, arrangements can be made so that you do not need to come into contact at all with one another. Now, that can be whether you’re having a face-to-face meeting or an online remote mediation, but obviously, if you’re conducting online remote mediation, you’re going to be in the comfort of your own surroundings and so you may feel less stressed by the thought of having these important discussions with the other party.
