Who Pays for Mediation?
When you are separating or divorcing we usually expect both participants in the mediation to pay a proportion of the mediation costs. This means that you both are “bought in” to the process and you are financially as well as emotionally invested in it.
Sometimes, where one person is on a low income, there may be a discussion about what is affordable and sometimes one participant may agree to pay the costs for both of you.
We live in the real world and we will seek to sort out an arrangement that works for you.
Whilst we completely understand that one person may have started the separation process, and this may all be very difficult for the person who feels that they would not have wanted to go down the route of separation, it is important that you both “invest” in finding an outcome that works for everyone involved.
We can help you to explore that that looks like.
