Going through a divorce is never easy, but thanks to technology, it just got more convenient than ever. For couples who live far from one another, have conflicting schedules, or frankly can’t bear to be in the same room as one another at the moment, remote Denver divorce mediation has become a popular choice for a mutually beneficial uncontested divorce that is as simple and painless as possible. Here’s what you need to know.
What is remote divorce mediation?
Over the past two years, we’ve seen companies in virtually every industry offer remote versions of their services, and divorce mediation is no exception. If you have a computer, an Internet connection and video conferencing capabilities, you can meet with your soon-to-be ex-spouse and a qualified divorce mediator from the comfort of your own home. No need to fight traffic to make it to a mediation appointment across town. Your mediator can help you and your soon-to-be former spouse dissolve your marriage quickly and equitably, with as little inconvenience and stress as possible.
How does it work?
The spouse who lives farther away will meet online with an attorney-mediator and their soon-to-be former spouse at a designated appointment time for a mediation session. Using videoconferencing and screen-share technology, your mediator will go over the key aspects of the divorce settlement point by point. You will be able to see everything being entered on the financial spreadsheets as though you were in the same room.
The laws of the state in which the appointment is being conducted will apply to the divorce regardless of the other spouse’s location. For instance, if you are using a Denver divorce mediation specialist but live in another state, the Colorado state divorce laws will apply.
Remote mediation sessions are as important and legal as in-person mediation and are handled in the same way.
Why remote divorce mediation?
Divorce can be stressful enough without having to worry about working around conflicting schedules or commuting long distances to attend mediation sessions. For couples with one spouse living or working out of state or overseas, remote mediation can help the divorce process move forward smoothly and swiftly without having to plan around the spouse’s in-state availability. Using remote sessions may also be a viable option for divorcing couples who wish to remain in separate locations while hammering out the details of their settlement.
Thanks to technology, divorce mediation is one more service that can be accommodated remotely. See if remote divorce mediation is a good option for you.
