One of the key benefits of mediation over litigation is the reduced cost. Those costs can increase when the parties have to incur travel expenses to meet and in some cases where the parties are at opposite ends of the country or in different countries. Whilst the preference for a mediator is for the parties to be together, online mediation can be a cost effective option if required.
Online mediation and videoconferencing can be arranged. It will require testing a couple of days before the date of the mediation to ensure that there are no technical issues and that everyone is prepared and ready on the actual day.
