How Long Will Mediation Take? What does it cost?
Each case is unique. Generally, cases scheduled for an individual consult with a mediator will last one (1) hour. Cases scheduled for a joint session, with all parties present, generally last two (2) hours per session. Some cases may require multiple mediation sessions. Mediation sessions are typically scheduled during traditional court hours of operation. Court Mediation offers, on a case by case basis, non-traditional hours (late afternoon and evening, for example) to better accommodate the needs of participants. At this time, there is no cost for a mediation session through Court Mediation.
