what is online mediation?

Online family mediation is a process of online dispute resolution (ODR) that allows family members to participate in a mediated dialogue with the assistance of an independent, impartial and professionally trained mediator.

Through this process, the mediator can offer guidance and help facilitate constructive communication between family members to resolve conflicts.

how online mediation works

Initial Assessment

The mediation process begins with an initial assessment, where Trusted Mediators evaluate the nature of the dispute, the parties involved, and their readiness for remote mediation.

Platform Selection

A suitable virtual platform is selected, ensuring security, ease of use, and accessibility for all participants. Trusted Mediators facilitate this setup to ensure a seamless experience.

Pre-Mediation Preparation

Prior to the first session, participants receive guidance on how to prepare for Long-Distance Mediation, including gathering relevant documents and setting goals for the process.

Mediation Sessions

The mediation process consists of multiple sessions, where participants engage in structured conversations mediated by a Trusted Mediators professional. These sessions aim to identify common ground and work towards mutually acceptable solutions.


All agreements and decisions reached during Long-Distance Mediation are documented in a legally binding manner, ensuring clarity and enforceability.

Post-Mediation Support

Trusted Mediators provide ongoing support to ensure that the agreements reached are implemented successfully. This helps prevent future disputes and promotes long-lasting resolutions.

The Steps to Long Distance Mediation

Use the telephone, Skype even video conferencing such as Facetime and other technology platforms to help bring individuals together from different parts of the world.

When things get rough in your relationship, it can become impossible to stay together. If you and your former partner are physically separated, long distance mediation can be a viable solution to help you resolve your conflict.

A good mediator will keep both parties focused on having the same goal in mind so that they can move on with their lives quickly.

Also, handling relationship conflicts are one of the situations that have the full potential to test one’s nerves.

In most cases, communication usually breaks down. If it is difficult for you and your ex to meet face to face, then long distance mediation can be an ideal option.


While virtual mediation is especially well-suited to resolving minor disputes where the costs of travel may be a major issue of concern, it can also be effective in cases where the controversy is not money-related or where the disagreement involves substantial financial consequences.
