Intake fees are charged to each party. They are not subject to refund.
Case development and mediation session fees:
A case development fee (CDF) is charged to each party and covers an individual case development meeting with just you and two of the three mediators who will work with you. A mediation session fee (MSF) is charged per mediation session to each party. This fee covers a mediation session with a panel of three mediators. Sessions usually range from two to three hours. (If a session goes longer than three hours, we usually find that people need to take a break and reconvene another day.)
CDFs and MSFs are due and payable prior to the case development meeting. All fees are based on the sliding scale below. CDFs and MSFs are refunded if those sessions do not occur.
