What is an Online Divorce Mediator?
An online divorce mediator is a neutral third-party that facilitates discussions between couples who are getting divorced. If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on your own, you may benefit from divorce mediation services.
The divorce mediator’s role is to help you identify and resolve issues in your divorce. The mediator does not give advice or make decisions for you; rather, they facilitate a conversation or series of conversations around the divorce settlement to help you and your soon to be ex-spouse work out the resolution to all of your divorce issues.
Online Divorce Mediation Process
The online divorce mediation process includes:
- Choose your mediator
- Meet your divorce mediator and provide information
- The divorce mediator identifies needs and interests
- Attend additional divorce mediation meetings in a virtual environment
- Compromise and negotiate to reach a divorce settlement
- Mediator prepares the settlement agreement
Like any process, divorce mediation only succeeds if you work diligently through it. Mistakes along the way can derail you quickly, and make recovery difficult. This is why it’s important that you hire an experienced divorce mediator to help you and your family.
