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. Our London rates are slightly more than our Peterborough rates due to the extra costs involved in running London sessions. Our charges are as follows:

  • Separate Mediation Information and assessment meeting (MIAM) is £100 each for Peterborough and £150 in London.
  • Mediation Session £100 per hour per person for Peterborough and £150 per hour per person in London. 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 per person
  • Summary of Proposals (MOU) and Open Financial Summary in financial matters £150 per person
  • Summary of Proposals (MOU) and Open Financial Summary in a children and financial matter £175 per person
  • 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 in Peterborough is £125 and a mediation session is £125 per hour per person. A Saturday MIAM appointment in London is £175 and a mediation session is £175 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. Occasionally, there may be a need to email and call the content of which will be shared with you both and we would not charge for this. It is sometimes useful after a session to receive an ‘outcomes’ letter 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 this document.

We like clients to feel reassured that they will not receive a large bill at any point during the process and we ask that they pay at the end of each meeting as people usually find this helpful for budgeting purposes. We have a card payment scheme and take all major cards and credit cards. Or you may choose to pay by bank transfer or cheque 5 days prior to the commencement of the session.

We do team 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 team 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:
