Mediation | The basics

  • Mediation may last from 1 to 4 or more sessions, depending on the complexity of the case and the willingness of the parties to settle.
  • Mediation sessions may be held in 3 to 6 hour increments.
  • Parties should gather and exchange all financial information prior to the sessions in order to make the most productive use of time during mediation.
  • Prior to the first mediation session we will provide you with forms to help you list all assets and debts and income and living expense information. These forms may be completed separately or together with the other party. The completed forms will be exchanged with the other party and a copy provided to the mediator.
