Clients are charged at an hourly rate. Please contact us to discuss the costs.
Mediators try to give clients an assessment of the likely cost at the start of the process and as they progress and the scope of the work needed to be done becomes clearer. The Mediator will always work in a solution focused manner to try to keep costs down to a minimum.
Some clients who are on benefits or in very low-paid employment are eligible for legal aid. In that case their costs are met by the Legal Aid Authority. In can happen that one party has the benefit of legal aid and the other party is paying for the service.
