In this episode, Susan Guthrie is joined by Leading Divorce Attorney and Best-Selling Author (and Susan's Work BFF!), Gabrielle Hartley, to talk about the BEST THING to happen to Divorce in ages:  Online Divorce Mediation.

With the advent of Covid, many court systems around the country (and the world) are effectively closed or operating only on an emergency basis, and in most cases, they don't consider your divorce an emergency!  This can affect divorcing couples in many ways; if they are thinking of divorce, they often can't file and even when they do, they can't get into court.  For ongoing cases, couples can't get court dates for hearings or trials so are on indefinite hold, and for those who are done but need help due to changes that have occured, as they have for so many during Covid with job loss and health issues, they also struggle to get a court date.  Even as some courts open for limited business, the backlog of cases that has been building for months, will take years, if not decades, to subside.  It's just one long, never-ending DIVORCE LIMBO!

So what is a couple to do?  One of the best (and only) options for many is online divorce mediation and it's a great option!  Both Susan and Gabrielle have been conducting mediations online with couples for years, long before Covid made the practice popular.  There are many reasons, beyond social distancing and safety, that make online mediation particularly well-suited for divorce cases.  This conversation between two of the top online divorce mediators in the country will enlighten you and show you how you can mediate online and move through your divorce and BEYOND!

Some MORE Highlights from the Episode:

  • Find out what the mediation process looks like online.
  • Hear why not having to sit in the same room with your spouse can be so helpful to the process.
  • Discover why online mediation is often even faster and easier than in-person mediation.
  • Learn about Gabrielle's innovative online mediation blitz, her Positive Divorce approach and how you can learn to be Better Apart with her book and program!

There are just so many benefits to mediating your divorce online, listen to this episode and get your life out of LIMBO!
