Cost of Mediation

The fee for mediation depends on whether you or your lawyer believe half a day will be sufficient for your case or if you will need a whole day. Please be advised that any mediation extending 1 hour or more past the scheduled mediation time, shall be subject to overage fees of $200.00 per party per hour.     A one-half day mediation begins at either 9:00 a.m. and is completed by 1:00 p.m. or begins at 1:30 p.m. and is completed by 5:30 p.m.  The mediation fee for a one-half day mediation is $400.00 per side. A full day mediation begins at 9:00 a.m. and is completed by 5:00 p.m.; lunch is provided for the parties by the mediator.  The mediation fee for a full day of mediation is $600.00 per side.  A deposit is required to be paid within 7 calendar days from the date of the mediation confirmation.  If mediation is sccheduled to take place within 7 calendar days, a deposit is required within 2 buisness days of the mediation confirmation. The deposit for half-day mediation is $200.00 and the remaining balance is due on the day of mediation.  The deposit for a full day of mediation is $300.00 and the remaining balance is due on the day of mediation. A $50.00 late fee will apply if deposits are not timely paid. You may pay your deposit by personal check, credit card, your attorney's check, cash or money order.  You may not pay any balance due on the date of mediation with a personal check; all other forms of payment are acceptable.  If you wish to pay your deposit with a credit card, please call our office, 817-284-5500, and we will take your credit card information over the phone. In order to reschedule your mediation the deposit must be paid by both parties before the mediation will be rescheduled. If the mediation is rescheduled a second time the deposit is forfeited and full fees for the new date must be paid at the time of booking the new date. If a rescheduled mediation is cancelled there is no refund of monies paid. Once scheduled, mediation cannot be cancelled without the consent of both parties. To avoid cancellation fees, all mediations should be cancelled 10 business days before mediation. If cancelled within the 10 business days then all fees paid will be considered an administrative fee and not refunded. If mediation is cancelled within 2 business days of the mediation date, full fees are due.
