HOURLY RATE FOR SERVICES
Mediation is charged on an hourly basis. Fees are collected on the day of the mediation. The hourly rate is based on a sliding scale related to your combined gross income.
Combined Gross Income: Hourly Rate:
Mediator’s Work Between the Mediation Sessions: If the mediator performs work for you between the mediation sessions, you will be charged for that work at the hourly rate. Each case requires slightly different attention between meetings and will be discussed with you on an ongoing basis. Services between mediation sessions may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Deposit: Upon the signing of this Agreement, you agree to pay a deposit of $75.00 for an Equitable Distribution Chart that will be prepared for you and includes the information that you provide to the mediator about your assets and debts. The Equitable Distribution Chart is used during the mediation to facilitate full financial disclosure and informed decision-making about the distribution of assets and debts between you. An additional deposit of $75.00 will be made for a Family Law Software file that will be prepared for you and includes your budgets, incomes and the relevant tax information provided by you to the mediator. The cash flow reports and the financial and tax information derived from the use of this program will help you make good decisions about child support, spousal maintenance (when necessary), dependency exemptions and related financial issues. The program can help you create a workable financial future.
Mediator’s Work Following the Mediation: When all the decisions necessary for the Agreement have been made by you, upon your request, Christine Hickey will draft a legal Separation Agreement and other associated documents such as Domestic Relations Orders (to transfer retirement assets) as long as you have agreed to the terms of the Retainer Agreement to Draft Separation Agreement Following Mediation.
The hourly fee arrangement set forth above does not include the preparation of the Separation Agreement and other associated legal documents such as Domestic Relations Order(s). Instead, a drafting deposit will be requested after all decisions have been made and you are ready to have the documents prepared. Please see the Retainer Agreement to Draft Separation Agreement Following Mediation for the associated fees.
Please read the Mediation Agreement for all further information on our services.
