Frequently Asked Questions: Divorce Mediation
How long does mediation take, and how much does it cost?
Most mediators have an hourly charge for their services. Time is charged for mediation sessions, and also the work that is done between sessions, such as writing agreements or memorandums of understanding. The complexity of the case and the personality and history of the participants will cause a mediation to take more or less hours. Divorce mediations are typically completed in three to six two-hour mediation sessions, plus additional mediator work outside the sessions.
