Our standard charges for the mediation process are as follows:
- Fees for Pre-mediation appointment and mediation - from 1st July 2022 - $330 per hour. The pre-mediation appointment usually takes 1-2 hours. Each mediation session usually lasts for between 1 and 3 hours. Some mediations are concluded after 1 session. However, most mediations typically take 2 or 3 sessions depending on the complexity of the issues and co-operation of the parties.
- Fees for Drafting Agreements - $330 per hour. It takes approximately 1 hour to write up a standard parenting plan.
- Fees for Phone Consultations/Support between appointments - $82.50 per 15 minutes. Phone calls before your first appointment are not usually charged for. Brief phone calls are sometimes made before and after each mediation and assessment but these calls are usually short and there is no charge.
- A cancellation fee of $200 applies if an appointment is cancelled within 24 hours of the appointment time.
