Online Mediation Spikes for Divorce in COVID-19

I had always thought that it was necessary to meet people in person in order to mediate. While I do love meeting with people and mediating that way, I have found that video conferencing is much more personal and connected than I would have thought.  Necessity is, of course, the mother of invention.  I had never hear of Zoom last February and now I find it to be simple and personal.  I am still able to stay in touch with body language…if someone wants to ask a question, etc.  Mediating online is working out quite well and I find that some people prefer it…as the article says…the commute is far better.
