Everyone is getting on the online divorce mediation train!

Are you feeling constricted?  Maybe you have not found the right fit for your divorce or other mediation?

Yes, the rumors are true. You can resolve your Massachusetts divorce, family, or business matter without leaving your own home or office. You could even wear your pajamas I suppose.   Despite the title of this post, we do have a relatively strict policy requiring pants. Sorry.

Technology, including online divorce mediation in Massachusetts, continues to help us serve clients efficiently and help people outside our geographic area, or those with mobility issues.

For example, our secure client platform enables us to share documents with you in a few clicks, and you can even upload documents to us.  Secure messaging is another feature that helps keep communications with us private and organized.  All of these things are part of your secure electronic case file, available 24/7 to you.

Online Divorce Mediation Without Pants in Massachusetts*

If you live far from our Medfield, Massachusetts main office, we can still provide you with top-notch divorce mediation and other dispute resolution services.   Do you live in Hingham?  Westford?  Cape Cod?   No problem, as long as you have a computer and the internet (well, and some money for mediation fees and as you know, some pants), then our skilled mediators can help you resolve a variety of Massachusetts legal issues through mediation.

With mediation, a neutral person works with the parties with the goal of reaching a settlement on all outstanding issues. Mediation is private (yes, everyone must still wear pants, it is not quite that private), voluntary, and provides significant cost-savings when compared to the traditional court-based litigation process.   We have a number of resources about mediation on this website, including in our blog section.   You may want to read this to start: Mediation Intro .

 

People routinely work remotely these days and attend meetings through various video-conferencing applications.  This technology is by no means cutting edge, but it is easy to forget the benefits of services such as Skype and Google Hangouts when thinking about legal services.

Simple Online Mediation, Even For The Technically Challenged

Conducting your divorce mediation online is easy.  No need to pay for any extra equipment (unless you do not have a built-in web-cam and microphone like most computers have). Just download an application such as Skype and register for a free account.  Of course, you will need access to the internet.   And pants.

In a mediation context, each participant will see the other people involved in the mediation session on their screen, including the mediator. You can also see yourself, in case you want to check your hair or get that little thingy from lunch off of your tooth.

We have completed a number of web-based divorce mediations successfully, and we would be pleased to have you talk with one of our experienced mediators to learn more about divorce and family mediation, or other types of mediation, whether you are near or far.  At Next Phase Legal LLC, all of our mediators are certified, experienced, play well with others, and are licensed attorneys in Massachusetts.

Please call Mediator/Attorney Steve McDonough at (508) 359-4043 for more information.  Although we have interjected a little humor into this post, divorce itself is an unfortunate and sad time for families.  We are committed to helping you through the process in a caring and respectful way.

Divorce mediation, elder law mediation, family mediation, business mediation, mediation for condo associations, landlord-tenant mediation, in Massachusetts.   Next Phase Legal is located in Medfield, right along Rt. 109.   We are close to Westwood, Walpole, Franklin, Norwood, Foxboro, Millis, Medway, Dover, and Sherborn.   Now, our mediators are streaming through the interweb to save you time, money, and stress. 

* No, seriously..please put on some pants.
