Going through a divorce can be a life-changing experience, and depending on the peculiar situation of your marriage, you may end up spending a ton of money going the litigation route. Many people are not aware though, that there’s another alternative that costs less and often results in an amicable separation. We are talking about online divorce mediation.
Why Go the Mediation Route?
A typical mediation lawyer can charge between $300-$500 per hour to act as a middle mediator that helps guide you through different problems in the divorce. When working with a mediator, a couple has more control over their decisions. Maybe they are unable to work through the problems on their own, but with the guidance of a mediator, things can suddenly become clearer and a solution that is both sensible and fair can be reached within a reasonable timeframe.
Does Online Mediation Work?
Although it’s totally fine to opt for traditional in-office mediation, many people prefer doing it online for a variety of reasons. First of all, physical mediation means that both of you have to be there in the mediator’s office. Moreover, depending on the complexity of your case, you may need to come back for multiple sessions. Such scheduling may not work for people who have a busy work schedule or who no longer live close to each other.
Online mediation makes use of advanced communication technology to overcome the limitations of not being physically in the same room. Skype is often used for making live calls. Scheduling an online mediation session is much more flexible than a traditional one. What’s more, it will cost you much less.
Make your divorce a less stressful experience by opting for an alternative to the litigation way. Online divorce mediation works no matter where you and your spouse are, costs less, and is very effective. Contact us today if you need more information.
