For a cancellation with less than 7 days’ notice, 50% charge of the appointment fee/s.

For on the day cancellations, full fee/s charged.

Meeting booked within 3 days, for on the day cancellations, the full fee is charged.

Please note that for joint sessions this means the full fees for both clients. The client that has requested cancellation usually pays this but we cannot enforce this on your behalf if the other party refused to reimburse you.

Service Time

Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm

Weekends bookings available but higher charges apply.

Additional Charges

We do not routinely charge for telephone calls, letters or other administrative duties outside of meeting times. However, further fees may be charged if the mediator is required to do considerable work in addition to normal case preparation. This may include reading reports, extraordinary case preparation or consultation with other professionals outside of session times. Generally additional time will be charged by the hour at the same rate as the mediation session fee. However, we will inform and agree charges with you beforehand.

The Mediation Quality Mark Standard requires us to provide all our clients with information about the potential costs of proceeding to court rather than mediation. Since solicitors fees vary greatly, it is difficult to estimate. However, as a guide, to go to court on a contested matter you may expect to pay upwards of £10,000.00 per person, per matter. Therefore, if the issues included both children and finances the starting point would be nearer to £20,000.00 per person, accounting for the two separate legal matters.
