Join us for another program in a monthly series addressing the new reality of online dispute resolution. The panel, composed of experienced dispute resolution professionals and experienced attorneys, will discuss the pros and cons of online dispute resolution in family law matters.

Dispute resolution options are especially important during the pandemic, allowing parties to resolve their issues in a timely manner when access to courthouses may be limited.

Specific topics will include:

  • Remote mediation: Past, present and future.
  • Current best practices: Will you continue these new practices post-pandemic?
  • What technology do you need?
  • Barriers to settlement: Is there an advantage to in-person vs. virtual?

This session was hosted using Zoom.
