Virtual Mediation for Florida
In Florida, a Family Law matter such as a divorce or child custody case, allows for the Mediation to be held virtually, or remotely, so you will not have to appear in person. This is achieved via 'Zoom Video Communication' . Use of this application provides videotelephony and online chat services through a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform and is used for teleconferencing, telecommuting, distance education, and social relations.
Zoom Video Communication is extremely popular as it allows individuals to work and become involved in a meeting, such as a Mediation, while in the comfort and safety of their home or office. This means of communication allows the parties, in any Family Law Mediation, to interact directly with each other and the Mediator without the need of the parties meeting in an office. The parties can all access the Mediation using this means of communication via their computer or smartphone. The Mediator will 'host' the meeting and will send all parties an 'invitation' to join the meeting. Once all parties are in attendance, the Mediator will place each party in a different 'room' or 'break-out session' using the platform so that the parties do not need to see each other. This also allows the Mediator to hold 'private' conversations with each party, and, if necessary, can join the parties together for a portion of the Mediation process.
Just think, no time wasted to travel to an office and deal with traffic, parking, etc. Your 'out of work' time is drastically reduced. What do you need to be able to take advantage of using this means of communication?
