Online mediation uses your choice of tools (phone, video, or text) for confidential, secure discussions about a wide variety of family concerns. Developing good communication skills is important. We aim to avoid, resolve, or minimize temporary crises. Where possible, we will develop long-term solutions. Online Divorce Mediation provides temporary or permanent solutions to issues related to divorce. Family Mediation Online includes mediation of a wide range of issues, including care of family elders, preservation of family assets, and other family-related topics. Marital Mediation Online may resolve a thorny issue so that the marriage can continue, avoiding divorce. With Premarital Mediation Online you and your future spouse will work together to build the foundation for your proposed partnership.
How Do We Start an Online Divorce Mediation?
It starts with a free, totally confidential 15-minute phone call. Your spouse may also have a free, totally confidential 15-minute phone call. Then, we schedule a 30-minute consultation for both spouses — it’s best if we are online together, but in separate physical rooms. If necessary, we can have separate consultations of 20 minutes for each spouse. The consultation is a gentle preview of how we might work together online. We practice using the technology and process guidelines for mediation, without any pressure to commit to mediation. You will receive a PDF of my free booklet “Creating a Soft Landing with Online Divorce Mediation.” Why wait? You can call 626-441-1900 now or you can schedule your confidential 15-minute phone call for a later time, using this link: www.gdanielsmediator.as.me/Free15minCONFIDENTIALcall
How Much Does Online Divorce Mediation Cost?
The short answer is “It depends.” Please inquire. My usual hourly rate is $230 per hour for all online mediations. However, the Covid-19 pandemic is disrupting usual routines. For a limited time, a sliding fee scale (from $120 per hour to $190 per hour) will be available for online divorce mediation. If you request mediation using the sliding fee scale, please know that both parties will be asked to provide information about current income.
What Else Do We Need to Know?
Reaching an agreement is great – but what then? Even couples who agree to all divorce terms in mediation will need a judge to sign off on the divorce judgment. Getting your judgment does not mean going to court for hearings. Most people don’t know that for most people, you don’t need an attorney to get divorced. You have options.
