Mediation sessions are normally one and a half hours in duration. For divorce or separation (involving children and financial issues) via the mediation process will normally require 4 to 6 sessions with an additional 2 hours to write a summary of proposals. So the cost would be expected to be in the range of £800 to £1100 + VAT. From 3rd November 2014 legal aid has been available to fund both the Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting and the first session of mediation where one of the people involved qualifies for legal aid.
Collaborative Law costs will vary according to the complexity of the case but generally are around £2,500 to £3,000 + VAT at 20% for each party in a straightforward case.
