How Much Does Divorce Mediation Cost?

Saving Money and Time

One of the biggest concerns many people have when it comes to ending their marriage is the overall cost of the process. Understandably so, ending a marriage can be a costly procedure that can cause a bit of financial fear. Fortunately, divorce mediation can ultimately end up saving parties both time and money. Here is what you should know about the cost of divorce mediation.

Impact of Time On Money

One of the reasons many individuals opt for divorce mediation over traditional divorce litigation is the time involved in both processes. When a couple goes through successful mediation and is able to create a settlement agreement satisfactory to all parties involved, then they benefit from avoiding both a lengthy court battle as well as the considerable expense surrounding litigation, including retainers and court costs.

It is very common and easy for a traditional divorce without mediation to take months to finalize, and that is depending on if spouses are able to negotiate a settlement agreement. Without that negotiation and having to rely on court decisions, the length of time to complete the process could end up being longer than expected. With a longer length of a divorce comes a higher overall price tag.

Cost of Service

The cost of the mediation itself, however, depends on the provider. Each provider will charge differently depending on their location, fee structure, and type of case. Many couples may see an amount varying from $3000 to $8000, and how much this costs depends on the agreement you have with your spouse.
