(Please feel free to consult with Essential Mediations concerning special financial needs, especially during the pandemic.)

Hourly Fees

Fees are $175.00 per hour per party.  See cancellation policy.

Partial-Day Fees

Fees are $350 per party, for half day.  See cancellation policy.

Full-Day Fees

When a full day of mediation is expected, the rate will be $650 per party, based on eight (8) hours. See cancellation policy.

Overtime Fees

If the mediation extends beyond eight (8) hours for a full-day or four (4) hours for a partial-day, then each party will be charged the hourly fee of $175 per party rate.  Please be prepared to write a check at the end of the mediation for possible overtime fees, bring a credit card or use a PayPal option.


Co-Mediation is available on request.  (Co-Mediation is when you have two mediators working together with all the parties.)  Co-mediation is recommended when there are cross cultures or other diverse situations that would be beneficial when there are 2 mediators of different genders and races.  Rates will be negotiated.

Cancellation Policy

A cancellation fee of $150, or $75 each party, will be charged to the canceling parties for a mediation canceled fourteen (14) days prior to the scheduled mediation date. Otherwise, mediation fees, once paid and scheduled, are non-refundable. When the mediation is rescheduled and conducted, we will apply any funds in excess of the $150 cancellation fee toward the rescheduled mediation. We will make every effort to work with you, your client, and your schedule.

All fees are due when the mediation appointment is confirmed by both parties.
