Fixed-Fee Mediation Package
How the Fixed Fee Divorce Mediation Package Helps You
Most divorce mediators charge by time, at rates of $300 to $400 per hour. They’ll tell you there’s no way to predict the final cost. But that doesn’t give you much peace of mind.
My approach is different. I don’t bill by the hour. There’s one fixed charge, so you’ll know the total cost right from the outset. You won’t be guessing or worrying about the final cost.
SLIDING-SCALE FEES. Mediation is a fixed price, depending on your circumstances.
If you have children under 23 and you own real estate: $3,200.
If you have children under 23 but you do not own real estate: $2,700.
If you do not have children under 23 but you own real estate: $2,700.
If you do not have children under 23 and you do not own real estate: $2,200.
Half is paid at the outset, and the balance is paid at the final meeting when you sign all your papers.
The fixed price includes:
- Three office meetings, either in person or by Zoom
- Preparation of all documents you’ll need for a joint “no-fault” divorce
First Meeting. Which type would you prefer? If you just want to meet and learn about mediation, you can schedule a 30-minute meeting. There’s no charge.
But if you want to discuss your situation in depth, you can schedule a meeting that lasts an hour and a half. I’ll send you two forms to complete beforehand. There’s a charge of $150, and the payment is applied to the total fee.
We’ll discuss everything you need for a solid divorce agreement. I’ll prepare a detailed agreement, along with the divorce petition, financial statements, affidavit, and everything you’ll need for a joint “no-fault” divorce.
Our final meeting takes about an hour. We’ll review your papers closely. You’ll sign everything, I’ll notarize, and I’ll give you detailed guidance about court — where you go, what you do, and what you can expect.
Payment methods. You may pay by check, cash, Venmo, debit, or credit card.
