For more information about ONLINE mediation
Historically, mediation has been done with all parties in the same location. Recently, the use of internet video conferencing has been successfully implemented as an effective form of mediation, without the need of all parties physically meeting in the same place.
Online mediation is the same principle as in-person mediation with the only exception being parties agree that their dispute can be handled remotely.
In some situations, being in-person is chosen over mediating in remote locations. This often depends on the mediator, the parties and the type of mediation that is being conducted.
