SCHEDULING YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT AND PAYMENT OF FEES
We understand the difficulties of trying to schedule professional appointments around your busy schedules. For your added convenience, we schedule divorce mediation appointments for evenings and weekends at no additional charge.
Non-Refundable Appointment Deposit: In order to schedule your first mediation appointment, there is a required non-refundable deposit of $600 ($300 each, unless you inform us you have agreed to split our fees otherwise). When you arrive for the scheduled appointment, this amount will be applied toward the package fees due at that time (see details in our Letter of Engagement).
Payment Options: Ordinarily, the fees are split evenly between the two of you, unless you inform us you have agreed otherwise. Full payment of Mediation fees are due at completion of the first mediation session ($1,800 less the $600 deposit detailed above = $1,200). We accept cash, checks and money orders.
If you have selected the Full Service Package, the final charge of $700 will not be processed until after you have reached and signed your Marital Settlement Agreement and Parenting Plan, and is not charged if you do not reach agreement. Once the mediation is over, we will begin the process of additional Document Preparation; we will then schedule one final meeting with each of you to sign and notarize the remaining documents.
