Divorce Mediation Fees
The average Massachusetts court divorce costs $15,900. And that’s an average. With mediation, you avoid a prolonged and expensive battle. And you save thousands at a time when you need all you can to move on.
Most divorce mediators charge by the hour. The rates vary, from $200 to $400 per hour. They’ll tell you that there’s no way to predict the total cost. Maybe there’s some truth to that, but that doesn’t help your anxiety level.
I offer a different approach. My “mediation package” is one fixed charge for everything.
The mediation package assures you that your divorce will be as quick and painless as possible.
The Mediation Package
The package includes three office meetings and preparing all the documents you’ll need for a joint “no-fault” divorce. The first meeting lasts an hour and a half, the second up to 2 hours.
At those meetings, we’ll discuss everything you need for a solid divorce agreement. Once you come to terms on everything, I’ll prepare a detailed agreement, along with the joint divorce petition, financial statements, and everything else you’ll need for a joint “no-fault” divorce.
Our final meeting takes about an hour. We’ll review your papers closely again. You’ll sign everything, and I’ll give you guidance about court — where you go, what you do, and what you can expect.
The total cost is $2,500. Half is paid in advance, and the balance is paid when you sign all your papers.
Payment methods. You may pay by check, cash, Venmo, debit card, or credit card.
