COSTS

It is important to us that the costs of Mediation are clear so that you can budget for the sessions and know from the outset what you are likely to spend on the process. At the present time all of our meetings are taking place online and the charges are as follows:

  • Separate Mediation Information and assessment meeting (MIAM) is £100 each person for a confidential individual meeting.
  • Mediation Session £100 per hour per person. Normally we schedule one and a half hours for each session. However sometimes sessions finish earlier or others may run on, you will only be charged for the time taken. On average the number of sessions required will be:
  1. For Child Only matters – Between 1 and 3 sessions
  2. For Finance and Property matters – Between 2 and 5 sessions
  3. For All Issues Mediation (both Children as well as Finance and Property) – Between 3 and 6 sessions
  • Summary of Proposals (MOU) in children only mediation`s £100
  • Summary of Proposals (MOU) and Open Financial Summary in financial matters £150
  • Summary of Proposals (MOU) and Open Financial Summary in a children and financial matter £175
  • Weekend Mediation we offer Saturday appointments as we realise that it can be difficult to fit an appointment into the working week. A Saturday MIAM appointment is £125 and a mediation session is £125 per hour per person.

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN COSTS?

In mediation all of the work is done during the sessions as it is important to maintain transparency and impartiality. Emails are kept to a minimum and are used to sort out the session times and dates – we do not charge you for this administrative service. After a session we provide a summary from the mediator, confirming what was discussed or outlining issues: if this is a lengthy letter, we would charge each of you £25 but the mediator will ask before preparing the summary.

We like clients to feel reassured that they will not receive a large bill at any point during the process. At the present time as all our meetings are taking place online we are providing an invoice in advance of the meeting and are asking all our clients to pay by BACS by 5pm the evening before the scheduled session.

A lot of our sessions are co-mediation`s. Where there are two Mediators present. This can be of great benefit if matters are complex. We do not charge any more for co-mediation`s.

PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION TERMS

We understand that sometimes things crop up and sessions will need to be re-arranged. It is best if you can give us as much notice as possible so that we can free up the slot for another couple. Do let us know the circumstances of the cancellation and we will work with you if it is a genuine emergency. But we will need to charge for missed sessions if you only give us a little notice:
