How To Resolve Your Disputes Without Leaving Your Home

Mediation is a process where two or more parties in a dispute meet with a neutral third party, called a mediator, to try to reach an agreement. Mediation can be done in person, over the phone, or over video.

There are many benefits to having mediation over video. One benefit is that it is more convenient for the parties involved. They do not have to travel to a mediation centre, which can save them time and money. Additionally, mediation over video can be more comfortable for the parties involved. They can sit in their own homes or offices, which can help them to relax and focus on the mediation process.

Another benefit of mediation over video is that it can be more affordable. The cost of mediation over video is typically lower than the cost of mediation in person. This is because there is no need to rent a mediation centre or pay for travel expenses.

Finally, mediation over video can be just as effective as mediation in person. Studies have shown that there is no significant difference in the outcome of mediations that are conducted over video and those that are conducted in person.

If you are considering mediation, I encourage you to consider mediation over video. It is a convenient, affordable, and effective way to resolve your disputes.

Here are some additional reasons why you might want to have mediation over video:
