Divorce Mediation and the Internet

The Internet is becoming an ever more integral part of effective and affordable divorce mediation services and programs. Adapting Internet technologies to mediation is not accidental.

ODR & Family Disputes Presentation Notes. New Frontiers in Cross Border Family Mediation.

As globalisation progresses and migration increases, the number of bi-national and bi-cultural relationships and marriages is increasing.

New Frontiers in Cross Border Family Mediation

This brings a new richness and diversity to our society, but can also bring new challenges and difficulties when those relationships break down. One of the difficulties that can arise is international parental child abduction, where one parent brings the child or children to another country, often their country of origin, without the other parents’ consent. This usually results in complex legal proceedings under the Hague Convention or Brussels II bis Regulation, and a time of intense anxiety and crisis for all family members involved. It is in this area, and the broader area of dealing with the fallout from the end of a bi-national relationship, that mediation is playing an increasingly significant part.

EU Intl Family Mediation Training Project - MiKK. Training in International Family Mediation In 2011 every European Union Member State has to implement the European Directive 2008/52/EG concerning mediation in civil and commercial matters in cross border conflicts, including family mediation.

EU Intl Family Mediation Training Project - MiKK

As yet, there is no harmonized European training with regard to international family mediation and – as a consequence – a lack of knowledge and an organizational vacuum. MiKK in cooperation with Child Focus, the Katholieke Universiteit van Leuven (KULeuven) and with the support of the Dutch Centre for International Child Abduction, created a training program for international family mediation. This project was co-financed by the European Commission.

Firstly a research analysis was done to define the landscape of international family mediation in Europe. The secondary component of this project was to ensure the dissemination of the training model across Europe. Cross-Border Family Mediation Book - Wolfgang Metzner Verlag. Introduction to Cross-Border Family Mediation Book. Where are the Children During the Distance Mediation Process? While discussing the concept of distance mediation, we – the Legal Information Counsellors at the BC Families in Transition – readily recognized the innovation of bringing mediation to all persons who desired this process.

Where are the Children During the Distance Mediation Process?

Yet we also became aware that children could easily “slip through the cracks” in distance mediation. Parents who are separating may consider it quite a convenience to participate in mediation right from their very homes, yet the responsibility to keep the children away from the close proximity of such an emotional and at times chaotic process becomes even more of a vigilant responsibility. Let’s explore some relevant aspects. Time factors As a mediator, most of my cases have been face-to-face with parties. This requires that parties drive to and from my office, giving them some “before and after” transition time that acts as a buffer to integrate parties back into routines. Separation within families is always traumatic.

And, if what I’ve seen is any indication, the one they use is likely pretty similar to the Agreement to Mediate document that their mediator colleagues use. If you are a mediator who uses one of these “typical” Agreements to Mediate, there’s a good chance that you haven’t (yet) addressed in it the types of unique issues that distance mediation can present – for example, how the Agreement to Mediate itself will be signed when all of the participants in the mediation are in different locations, or how confidentiality will be managed when parties are in their own home where there could be Someone Else lurking in the background during the mediation session. Or, my personal favorite, how participants will deal with process disruptions in the event the technology decides it’s going to have a bad day.
