Distance Mediation in BC.

Family Mediation in the Clouds

This is a cost-effective way to settle separation and divorce issues when couples are far from one another geographically, or if they are far from their chosen mediator.

Mediating from a distance

Kelowna Divorce has been doing it for the past 10 years and the first couple that we helped were located in West Kelowna and Mexico City. The husband, Dwight, has the following to say about it:

“This divorce for sure was very complicated because I was living in Mexico and my ex was living in Canada. I know without  Wes and Kristy, I would still be in the same situation as I was before. They were able to let my ex-wife and I vent our frustrations and anger and help us to see that there was hope and that life could still be great at the end of this process. You went far and above what I ever thought you would do for us and you are still in contact with us to make sure we’re ok.”

Since helping Dwight and his ex-spouse, we have many other examples of couples that we’ve helped and who are spread across North America and the rest of the world.

Our definition of cloud mediation is using technology to assist couples through the painful process of separation and divorce while one or more of the clients are not in the same room as our mediator. We use whatever technology is available and which our clients are comfortable using. It includes email, texting, web conferencing including Skype, cell phones and land lines. The choice is left up to our clients.

Mediate BC has produced a report called “Mediating from a Distance: Suggested Practice Guidelines for Family Mediators.” In fact, we have incorporated these guidelines into our own practice.

If you and your spouse are physically miles apart from one another and you find yourself on the brink of separation and divorce, or if all else has failed, give us a call at 250.707.0928 or request a consultation.
