Because of COVID-19, many courts are closed, thus postponing some legal affairs that needed to take place. Because of the “new normal”, delays even after this lockdown might still happen; that is why people in disputes are considering mediation.
What is mediation?
Mediation is a lawful action wherein both parties reach a settlement by discussing their conflicts with a mediator, a third person who is not related to either of the parties and is qualified to handle the disputes. Mediations may be done in a single day without going to the courts.
Advantages of mediation
What do I need to do for mediation during this lockdown?
Mediations are now done remotely, via online platforms such as Skype, Zoom, or Teams. Even though done online, the structure is still followed as if it is done face to face. The mediator may hold multiple meetings to address all concerns and may conduct one on one online sessions to hear out the concerns of both sides.
To be able to participate in mediation all you need is access to an internet connection and a PC or laptop, smartphones may also be used. Do not worry about the online platform to be used yet because the mediator may suggest or share what application you will use for the mediation.
