FAMILY MEDIATION
PRICING ESTIMATES

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 the following pricing estimates to provide a bit of predictability. 

Fees are subject to applicable sales tax

 

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 estimated fees associated with each one.  Each estimate includes the cost of the pre-mediation meetings and the completion of the full Separation Agreement.
