Divorce Mediation Costs

Mediation is a fraction of the cost of court battles. Rates for mediation are significantly lower than attorney fees and working together reduces the amount of time required to reach agreement.

Cost Share

Private session fees are generally paid by each person separately.  Fees for joint sessions are generally shared, either based upon pro-rata percentage of income or according to agreement. You may also choose to pay the entire cost from marital assets.

Initial Private Orientation Sessions (45 minutes) $75.00 – one for each of you
Joint Sessions (2 hours) $300.00

Number of sessions to complete agreements averages 2-3 for a Divorce with Minor Children and 1 for a Divorce without Minor Children
