Online Divorce Mediation Services Available Across New York State

To cope with the pandemic and lockdowns, people everywhere took advantage of technology to continue to work and stay in touch. As a result, many services remain available through online tools even as in-person restrictions start to ease. This includes BJ Mann Divorce Mediation Services.

Online mediation sessions are convenient and eliminate travel time. Those benefits also reduce scheduling conflicts. 

We’re all used to physical distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, but even when health isn’t an issue, not having to meet face-to-face can be a plus—especially in a divorce.

BJ brings her decades of expertise and experience as a successful divorce mediator to clients from New York City to Alexandria Bay, from Albany to Buffalo, and everywhere in-between. She uses the Zoom video platform, which is accessible via a computer, tablet, or phone with an Internet connection. Of course, emails and phone calls remain available.

It’s Not One Divorce, It’s Four

Most talk about divorce implies it’s a one-dimensional activity: Two people decide they no longer want the legal relationship.

In fact, there are at least three parts to divorce, or four, if you have children:

  • The Legal Divorce: Understanding the law, regulations, and guidelines in divorce can be a challenge.
  • The Economic Divorce: Separating assets and finances is another kind of divorce.
  • The Emotional Divorce: Divorce means both people need to disconnect emotionally and dismantle the couple relationship. If children are involved, a new relationship must be built between the parents to see to the children’s needs.
  • The Children’s Divorce: Despite reassurances that the divorce isn’t their fault and both parents still love them, children also go through their own divorce from the life they knew.

BJ Mann guides you and helps you find resources for all four parts of divorce.
