Mediation costs less. Since you are using a mediator to resolve your dispute instead of an attorney for each disputant, you’re immediately cutting your costs in half. Mediation is quicker than litigation so you save money. Research shows that parties who have mediated their cases return to Court significantly less often than parties who didn’t mediate. So it’s less likely that you’ll have to spend money resolving future conflicts.
Another money saver is that our mediators are able to perform computer analyses for you that show you the impact of spousal maintenance, child support, and exemptions on your financial picture. These computer scenarios give you the tools to make good decisions without having to hire a financial professional.
We charge an hourly rate for our mediation services so you pay only for the time you actually use to resolve your dispute and for us to document your decisions. We offer three ways to pay for your mediation. You may choose to “pay as you go” in which you pay at the end of each session. You may also choose the “retainer model” in which you pay a retainer toward the total costs of your mediation and you receive a free hour of mediation as well as a refund of any unused monies. Or you may choose the “layaway plan” in which you pay a fixed amount of money each month until your mediation costs are fully paid. We work with you to create a payment plan that will work for your unique needs.
