Mediation costs are based on an hourly fee. The per hour charge is the fee for both of you. Because you are hiring one professional instead of two, and because the process is direct and efficient, the cost of a mediated divorce will be substantially less than hiring two separate divorce lawyers. The mediator's goal is to help you save time and money; this may not be the goal of other professionals.
The time involved in reaching a fully-informed and durable divorce settlement depends on several factors. Please call to speak with a mediator (617-926-9100), who will better help you understand the costs at our firm.
