Effective Mediation Settings To Suit Your Needs
In today’s world, online communications have become commonplace, comfortable and normalized. Mediations and hearings can now take place online through video meeting services. However, there are some benefits and disadvantages to in-person and online mediations. Ultimately, both options have equal effectiveness, and it depends solely on the comfort and preferences of both parties.

Online And In-Person Mediations: What Is The Difference?
An in-person mediation requires the parties to physically meet in the same place to discuss and resolve their dispute. As the traditional method, live mediations have certain benefits that you cannot get online. For example, when you sit across from someone at the mediation table, you are both in the same environment, putting you at a level playing field comfort-wise. You also have the opportunity to fully see everyone’s body language and nonverbal cues. It is also easier to discuss physical evidence, such as photographs or documents, in a live mediation.
Online mediations are flexible and convenient and allows all parties to participate in the mediation from the comfort of their own home or office. Online mediations are especially useful for those who live far away from each other or physically cannot attend in person. They are also easier to schedule and saves time and money by eliminating travel expenses. In an online mediation, it is still possible to have private digital breakout room session with your attorney, just like in person.
