Mediation Fees

Hourly fees offer flexibility for a variety of family mediation scenarios, including divorce mediation, pre-nuptial agreements, and elder care issues. My rate for professional mediator time is $230 per hour for online mediation.

Divorce Mediation Packages provide significant discounts, especially when combined with preparation of court documents for you to represent yourself. If you live in Los Angeles County, I can provide Legal Document Assistance at your direction.

When choosing how to proceed, the hourly rate matters, but so does the complexity of the issues to be decided. I have had experience with cases involving complicated facts, significant delays by the parties, and high conflict between spouses. These cases may require more hours to reach agreement, but mediation is still the best process for almost all family situations.

PREPARATION OF COURT DOCUMENTS
for
Representing Yourself in an Uncontested Divorce

In addition to your Mediated Marital Settlement Agreement, you will need to have a complete court file so that a judge can sign off on your divorce. If you live in Los Angeles County, I can prepare the necessary documents for your uncontested divorce according to your instructions to me, so that it will be highly unlikely that you will need to go to the courthouse at all. If you live in another California county, I can refer you to LDA’s in your county who are members of CALDA, the California Association of Legal Document Assistants.
