What is the cost of mediation?
Westminster Family Mediators will charge on a fixed rate basis for either half day (up to 4 hours) or full day (6-8 hour) mediations.
In most cases our fees are shared equally between the parties and are payable whatever the outcome of the mediation.
As the mediator’s costs are largely a function of time, the quicker pace of mediation often means that mediation costs are significantly less than if the dispute went to court for determination. Additional fees may be chargeable for time spent in preparation, research or reviewing documents. Please refer to our Agreement to Mediate which would be signed by both parties prior to the mediation.
