Divorce Mediation: Qualifications of Mediators and Cost
Mediators are approved by the Court after completing a Court approved training program and generally hold degrees in law, psychiatry, psychology, social work, human development, family counseling or other related fields. Mediators are paid a fee for their services which is allocated in percentages to each party, to be paid by the parties at the time of each mediation session. Unless otherwise agreed, mediation entails a maximum of three (3) hours and mediators may charge an additional hour for administrative fees.
