Fixed Fee Divorce Mediation Package
My approach to pricing differs from most attorney-mediators. I don’t bill by the hour. The divorce mediation package is one fixed price for everything. The total cost is $3,200. Half is paid in advance, and the balance is paid when you sign all your papers.
The fixed price divorce mediation package includes:
- 3 office meetings
- preparing all the documents you’ll need for a joint “no-fault” divorce.
The first meeting lasts 1.5 hours, the second lasts 2 hours, sometimes a bit less, sometimes a bit more. At those meetings, we’ll discuss everything you need for a solid divorce agreement. I’ll prepare a detailed agreement, along with the joint divorce petition, financial statements, affidavit, and everything you’ll need for a joint “no-fault” divorce.
Our final meeting takes about 1 hour. We’ll review your papers closely again. 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.
How My Fixed Fee Divorce Mediation Package Helps You
The average Massachusetts court divorce costs $15,900. Mediation lets you avoid a prolonged, expensive battle, reducing your cost greatly.
But most divorce mediators charge by the time spent, at rates of $300 to $400 per hour. They’ll tell you there’s no way to predict the final cost. There’s some truth to that, but that doesn’t help your stress level.
With a fixed cost, you’ll be able to reduce your anxiety, plan your budget, and move on with your life quickly.
