The best way to divorce in Tampa Bay is online

What if we were to tell you that you could end your marriage in as little as one 4-hour appointment? Imagine cutting out all of the legal proceedings and hearings that are normally associated with divorcing couples, and just focusing on negotiating an agreement with your spouse on how exactly to end the marriage.  All of this is possible with Natalie Baird, your virtual mediation specialist. 

Divorces can certainly be painful, drawn out experiences, but they do not have to be. Natalie Baird in the Tampa Bay Area has pioneered a new way for her clients to end their marriage in the simplest way possible – using video conferencing technology that is now so widely accepted, you can even use it for legal matters.

In what typically involves driving to an office and meeting face-to-face with your mediator, you can now meet virtually from the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home or office. The process involves you and your spouse each connecting to your own private virtual mediation meeting room. From there your mediator will move back and forth between the two meeting rooms to act as a conduit for you and your spouse to negotiate the terms of your divorce. It is suggested you bring your own legal counsel to your virtual mediation, because a mediator is a neutral third party that is not permitted to provide legal counsel. 

The role of  Natalie Baird (your divorce mediator) is to facilitate negotiations, not to take sides in a spousal disagreement. Mediators do not choose winners and losers, and they do not make decisions for you or your spouse. 

Here at Natalie Baird Mediations in Tampa, we definitely recommend a mediation session rather than a litigated divorce. Litigated divorces are often full of contention and they can take forever, in some cases up to one year or more. At the completion of the legal proceedings you will have a final court date in which a judge will decide how your marital assets are divided. Florida is what’s known as an equitable distribution state which means that in most cases a judge will divide the assets equally for each spouse. In many cases, this is not the best solution for either spouse because there is usually much room for negotiations. Each case is different, but in our experience, our clients in the Tampa Bay area are happier with a mediated divorce rather than a long drawn-out litigated divorce. 

The best part?

Possibly the best part about virtual mediation services is that you can attend the appointment from wherever you are. As long as you have a video enabled device such as a smartphone or laptop, you can attend your mediation, regardless of your current location. The mediation is binding and completely legal, so you can end your marriage and move on with your life.

Natalie Baird from Tampa Bay is here to help you and your spouse during what could be the most difficult time in your lives. She has the experience and a dedication to help even the most disagreeable spouses end their marriage on their own terms. Natalie is a board certified inactive Attorney as well as a Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator. You can trust her to help you and your spouse end your marriage in an agreeable way.
