FAQ : Mediation
What is the cost for mediation?
Generally, it is $250 per hour which is shared between each party so individually you would be paying $125 per hour. There is a one-time administrative fee of $300 ($150 each party). A range of $2-3,000 per party is the average total cost.
How long does mediation take?
If you can accomplish beginning to end in less than three months, I think you have done well. The number of sessions depends on the number of issues and the dynamics between the parties. I don’t come up with a strategy until after our first meeting and that is always subject to change given your particular circumstances.
Can I bring an attorney to mediation?
With advanced notice, yes. Without advanced notice, yes but I would prefer advanced notice and a discussion with both parties before that meeting.
Will I have a chance to review the Mediation Summary/Agreement before signing it?
You will always have an opportunity to review the mediation summary or final Agreement with an attorney.
