Why a virtual mediation will save you money during your divorce in Tampa, St. Petersburg or Clearwater

Spouses that have decided to divorce are faced with numerous challenges. Time sharing with children, assets and debt are among these important topics that must be agreed upon during a divorce. Instead of doing a litigated divorce,it would be extremely beneficial for both spouses to do a mediated divorce. A mediated divorce is both quicker and less expensive than a litigated divorce.

What is a mediated divorce

A mediated divorce is a divorce in which the two spouses agree upon the terms of their divorce rather than a judge decide what happens to the marital assets.

What is a virtual mediated divorce?

During the times of COVID-19, society discovered that you do not need to meet in person in order to do business and legal affairs. Using modern technology court cases and other legal procedures can be accomplished via video teleconferencing. We like to call it a Virtual Mediation.

Natalie Baird of Baird Mediations has been leading the industry in virtual mediations. By using modern video conferencing technology, you and your spouse can attend your mediation from anywhere of your choosing. No longer do you and your spouse need to meet in an office to decide the terms of your divorce.

What are the benefits of virtual mediation?

Easy accessibility

Because the mediation is conducted over the internet you do not need to schedule time out of your day to drive to a dedicated mediation location. You can attend from your own home in Tampa or Clearwater or wherever you happen to be. After the mediation is complete, you just continue on with your life.

Less stress

Because sometimes divorces can be contentious, meeting via virtual mediation can help reduce tension between you and your spouse. Driving and meeting in an unfamiliar office with unfamiliar surroundings in Tampa Florida can be stress inducing. Virtual Mediation is a simple way to help reduce overall stress

Less cost

Compared to a litigated divorce, virtual mediation is significantly cheaper for both your spouse and yourself. The terms of your divorce are decided by you and your spouse, rather than a judge who has no knowledge of your lives or situation. Because your divorce is happening in Florida, all of the assets from your marriage typically are divided equitably. This might not be the best solution for your situation, so a divorce in which you control the terms is a great benefit.
