Unlike face-to-face mediations, Virtual Mediations allow the parties to participate from the comfort of their own offices or homes. It allows not only social distancing, but distancing from the opposing party for increasing comfort. Increased comfort can allow better exploration of possible resolutions. Virtual documents can be executed in minutes, and are as legally binding as "wet ink" version, plus they are already in PDF and ready to file in court. Parties have separate rooms which are 100% private. No one over-hears you from the other room. And of course, in today's world, there is no exposure to any pathogens, from a joint process at the Mediator's office. Once you try it, you'll be surprised at just how much you like it!
