MEDIATION PRICING

It's a Flat Fee

Most family law services are charged at an hourly rate, but when you're going through a separation, which is already a time of uncertainty, an unknown variable expense is just an additional worry.  To help you plan and budget, I've created flat fee services to provide a bit of predictability.  Each stage has it's own flat fee, as set out below.  

Fees are subject to applicable sales tax

 

Step 1: Pre-Mediation Meeting

I meet with you for about one hour to discuss your circumstances and what you're hoping to achieve in mediation.  I have to do these meetings separately, so that I can assess each of your perspectives and get a sense of where I can best lend my support and guidance.  This meeting helps me plan what documents you need for mediation and what information you might wish to gather before we all come together in our joint session.

$300 per person

Step 2: Joint Mediation Session

The length and cost of your mediation depends on what matters you and your spouse need to resolve.  I have the three most common types of discussions laid out below and the flat-fee associated with each one.  

Parenting Mediation

When only parenting needs to be addressed (no property is owned)

  • all preparation of materials and communication with my office

  • assistance in gathering and organizing the necessary documents for mediation

  • a half-day mediated planning session addressing parenting matters, such as:

    • best interests of your children​

    • communication

    • parenting time and scheduling

    • holiday time

    • travel

  • preparation of Child Support calculations

$1,200 per person

Financial Mediation

For those with only financial matters to resolve

  • all preparation of materials and communication with my office

  • assistance in gathering and organizing the necessary documents for mediation

  • a half-day mediated planning session addressing financial matters, such as:

    • financial intentions and goals

    • monthly child support

    • monthly spousal support

    • distribution of property and debt

  • preparation of Child and Spousal Support Calculations​

$1,200 per person

Parenting & Finances

For families with parenting and property matters to resolve

  • all preparation of materials and communication with my office

  • assistance in gathering and organizing the necessary documents for mediation

  • a full day mediated planning session addressing:

    • parenting matters, such as:

      • best interests of your children​

      • communication

      • parenting time and scheduling

      • holiday time

      • travel

    • financial matters, such as:​

      • financial intentions and goals

      • monthly child support

      • monthly spousal support

      • distribution of property and debt

  • preparation of Child and Spousal Support Calculations​

  • preparation of property distribution calculations

$1,800 per person

Step 3: Legal Agreement

Once you and your spouse have made your decisions in the joint mediation session, then I'll draft your legal agreement.  I use really common legal  language and neutral wording so that it's user friendly and so that it's easy for everyone to understand and implement.  You'll both get a copy of the agreement in a Microsoft Word version so that you can make changes directly to the document.  You'll also get copies of all the calculations and spreadsheets that we used in the session.  My intention is that you walk away from mediation with everything you need to get advice and sign the agreement in the most efficient way possible.

Parenting Agreement

$700 per person

Financial Agreement
