My goal is to provide you with a cost effective and less confrontational experience during this difficult time. We meet in a warm and friendly setting and my price for mediation is based on your combined gross income.
The hourly rate for mediation sessions is $120/hr. A normal mediation typically is complete within three to four hour-long sessions.
If you wish to have a Separation Agreement scribed, the fee ranges between $850 to $1,000 depending on the number and complexity of the terms of the Agreement – this includes calculating child support, developing a parenting plan and providing you with a draft and final document.
I work with an attorney who will prepare and file the Divorce Decree for a fee of $500 plus court fees (approximately $375).
