Online mediation is very similar to face to face mediation but the meetings take place over webcams on a computer, tablet or even a smartphone, rather than in the same room.

Online mediation may be preferred if:
  • The parties does not liver near to each other, or indeed, if they are in different countries;
  • The parties do not live near to a mediator;
  • The parties wish to save time travelling to the mediator; 
  • A party considers that they would be at risk of harm if they were in the same room as the other party;
  • A party has a disability which makes attending a mediation difficult; or
  • A party prefers to mediate online, just as they may prefer to shop or bank online.
