Usually, divorce mediation takes place with both spouses in the same room as the mediator. However, sometimes circumstances might arise when having meetings with all three in the same room is not practical, possible, or productive.
If a couple is able to evaluate the disputed issues, but the communication of the same prevents any progress, occasionally, the mediator will split up the couple into different rooms to speak with each separately. This form of shuttle diplomacy is called “caucusing.”
If being in the same room is geographically impossible, the use of technology can assist in bringing the mediation to wherever the individuals might be. If, for example, one spouse has moved out of state, video conferencing can be used to host a mediation meeting when travel is not practical.
