Family breakdown cases which are resolved through professional mediation are cheaper and quicker to settle. Family finances can come under extreme pressure when a family is breaking up and Catherine’s goal is to help, not hinder the process of change, so she sets her fees accordingly.
If your case involves child arrangements, please ask about the Ministry of Justice Family Mediation Voucher Scheme. Catherine can apply to the government on your behalf for up to £500 towards the cost of mediation.
We also work with solicitors and other organisations please get in touch for more details about how we can work together to help families.
Initial Mediation Appointment [MIAM] £100
Cost per hour. An initial 45-60 minute ‘Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting’ (MIAM) is a mandatory requirement and costs £100. At a MIAM, you will explain the details about your situation and Catherine will explain the mediation process. IF we decide that mediation is not appropriate, Catherine is qualified to sign court documents - a C100 (for child arrangements) or Form A (for finances) – which she will do at no extra cost. A signed court form can usually be provided within 24 hours to enable you to make a court application without delay.
Mediation Appointment £100 per person per session
Mediation sessions cost £100/hour per person. One mediation session usually lasts 90 minutes.
Child Inclusive Mediation £150
Child Inclusive Mediation (which includes a meeting with the parents, confidential meeting with the child or children, then a feedback session to the parents) costs £150 and can be covered by the Family Mediation Voucher
