Divorce Mediation in MA can safely proceed during Coronavirus

Divorce Mediation

You don't have to wait to move forward on your divorce during this Coronavirus Pandemic.  

Adhering to necessary social distancing during this time remains crucial, therefore rather than meeting in person to have a divorce mediation session, we can now do this virtually. Participating in a virtual divorce mediation session still allows the couple (the parties to the mediation) either from one computer or each having their own where ever they may be, to see the Mediator and the Mediator to see the couple. 

As we all know, much can be said in the way of facial expressions so no fear that the Mediator won't be able to detect your emotions and feelings. 

Mediating a divorce by way of having virtual divorce mediation sessions is just as effective as having a session in person. 

Educational materials can be emailed or snail mailed. Financial statements and back up financial documents the same. 

In the spirit of neutrality which is a chief component of mediation will remain intact with virtual divorce mediation sessions taking part with both individuals and the Mediator(s).  Emails are sent to and from both individuals (spouses) and the Mediator. 

Confidentiality remains intact.
