MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) – one per person at the start of mediation:
£150 per person (Fixed Fee).
A joint MIAM (both parties together) is possible in the right circumstances – price to be confirmed with mediator when agreeing this option.
After successful MIAMs, we try to make our mediation service accessible and affordable for all. Our mediation work is priced on a case by case basis. The price depends on a number of factors including complexity and urgency. Our ‘out of hours’ mediation appointments are popular, e.g. Saturday mornings. Many clients choose these in preference to using up their annual leave. A small premium is added to the usual mediation charges for ‘out of hours’.
We also offer price options to our clients; e.g. a fixed fee per session / per document, or pay on an hourly rate basis for the actual time spent. A mediation session includes not just the face to face time in the meeting, but also the mediator’s preparation time beforehand and write up afterwards. Particularly in financial mediations, where there might be a lot of financial documentation to deal with, the time outside of each session can be significant. We believe that our preparation is a key ingredient in facilitating a successful mediation session for you.
“keeping on the right path” (annual check in service)
Clients choose from an option to pay monthly by standing order in advance or pay on the standard hourly rate basis. Paying in advance by standing order means that, by the time the next session comes around, your payment is all taken care of. We can offer you a discounted price when you pay this way because it reduces admin for us; we will confirm the price with you depending on whether you are preparing your own schedules/calendars etc. or we are doing that as part of the annual service.
PARENTING CO-ORDINATION FEES
Our parenting co-ordination work is also priced on a case by case, starting from an hourly rate of £250 per hour, which is usually shared between the parties.
We also offer price options; e.g. a fixed fee (paid per month for the duration of the contract) or an hourly rate basis.
SUPPLEMENTARY FAMILY SERVICES FEES
These are all priced on a case by case, taking into account complexity, urgency, any travel and the likely duration of the work.
Due to the bespoke and sometimes ad hoc nature of these additional services, work is charged at an hourly rate basis for the time spent.
