Remote Mediation makes Dispute Resolution more accessible

United States | General information | Popularity - 0/10
When you are looking to hire a mediator to help you resolve a dispute that you are having with an individual or a company, but for various reasons, meeting face-to-face would be difficult. That’s where online mediation or remote mediation comes in. The concept of remote mediation is often as contextual as the conflict it attempts to resolve. Mediation is often thought of as the last step to adjudicate disputes.  In reality, it should be one of the first steps, before legal fees mount, stress builds and conflict increases between the parties. Mediation is a negotiation between two or more parties facilitated by an agreed-upon a neutral party. The neutral party mediator can lower the emotional feelings in a negotiation, bring about more effective communication, and provide solutions that the parties might have overlooked. But what if you and the other party are located in a different geographic area, or do not feel comfortable meeting in person during the COVID-19 Pandemic?  Or what if your dispute originated across local or state borders?

Should a mediator seek to define with participants how they would like to best communicate online, both during the mediation and, perhaps, before or following the mediation?

In addition to meeting face-to-face, mediators and participants may communicate via online video, as part of virtual mediation platforms, by email, attachments, text message, phone and other means. Mediators and participants are encouraged to utilize a range of communicative options in support of their mediation. It is understood that the confidentiality of mediation communications shall not be lessened nor determined by a selected communication. To the extent that participants jointly prefer communicating in certain ways during mediation, those preferences should generally be honored by the mediator. To the extent that participants have different preferences for how to communicate during mediation, the mediator shall seek to best satisfy those interests in an overall balanced way.
