E-mediation is convenient and cost-effective. Since you aren't meeting with the other party face-to-face, you're saving yourself commuting time and saving yourself the cost of renting out a mediation office (which most mediators build into their hourly prices).
E-mediation is just as effective as in-person mediations. In both the physical and online environments, parties are given the chance to talk to each other, exchange documents, and see one another. The mediator is able to employ the same negotiation techniques she would employ in a physical environment.
E-Mediation Services offers online mediations with a live mediator for all kinds of civil disputes, including:
Contract law disputes
Real estate disputes
Homeowners Association (“HOA”) disputes
Property law disputes
Trusts & estates disputes
Disability law disputes
Employment law disputes
Education law disputes
Intellectual property disputes, such as:
Trade secret disputes
Entertainment law disputes, such as:
Music law disputes
Film/TV law disputes
Sports law disputes
Art law disputes
Please note that E-Mediation Services does not offer mediations for divorces or child custody disputes.
E-Mediation Services charges $200 per hour and has a 2-hour minimum for all mediations.
Unless otherwise noted, parties are expected to split the mediation fees evenly.
Payment can be made online, via PayPal or most major credit cards.
In order to ensure the confidential nature of mediation is preserved, everybody participating in the mediation must do so from a quiet, secure environment. Non-disputants are not allowed to be in the room when a party is participating in mediation.
Similarly, no mediation participants are allowed to record the mediation.
And, to successfully conduct the e-mediation, each party needs to have an internet connection and webcam.
