Cost is an important question for couples considering divorce or other family law issues. Family Mediation Center was created to provide affordable mediation services to help couples reach agreements and navigate the legal process with a minimum of conflict and cost. Here are answers to your cost questions:
How Much Does Mediation Cost?
This way you control costs by setting up your own pay-as-you-go payment plan or paying the flat fee.
Is Mediation the Lowest Cost Option?
As a one neutral lawyer process, mediation is much less expensive than if each of you hires your own lawyer. If compared to a do-it-yourself divorce, the answer may be no. Self-help, however, can end up being costly. Some couples start out on their own and then hire lawyers part way through or even complete their divorce themselves but end up returning to court later with post-judgment issues based on misunderstandings or mistakes. This can cost more than using a mediation process from the outset to help you avoid costly mistakes or issues later.
