Mediation Costs at Jolly Mediation


Understanding the financial aspects of navigating through separation or divorce is crucial. Jolly Mediation provides a transparent overview of mediation costs, ensuring you are fully informed from the outset.

Cost-Effective Solutions for Family Resolution

Mediation is a cost-effective way of reaching agreements after separation and is highly recommended as a first step before resorting to solicitors and courts. It's more economical and faster and typically results in fair and practical outcomes. Importantly, mediation keeps your discussions private, avoiding the potentially damaging exposure of legal battles.

I pride myself on clarity and transparency in all my mediation costs. Below is a detailed outline of our fees for various mediation services, including divorce mediation costs. Rest assured, there are no hidden extras, and all my services can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Payments to Jolly Mediation can be conveniently made online via BACS.

Step 1: Initial Consultation Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM)

The Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) is your starting point. It offers you the chance to share the background of your situation, explore possible ways forward, and decide the best way for you to try to resolve your dispute. I can also give you information on many other sources of help and advice.

If you are considering asking the court to make an order in a family matter, you will be required to attend a MIAM meeting. An authorised mediator will sign the relevant court forms to confirm your attendance at this meeting, should it be required.

MIAM: £135 per person
MIAM certificate for court: £65

Step 2: Joint/Shuttle Mediation Sessions

Our face-to-face time cost includes all preparation time and the writing of session outcome statements. Mediation meetings last 1.5 hours (shuttle mediation meetings last 2 hours)

Joint mediation meetings (1½ hours): £195 per person per session
Shuttle mediation meetings (2 hours): £270 per person per session (additional costs for room hire may apply unless conducted virtually)

Additional Services

For those requiring further assistance, we offer:

Child Inclusive Mediation (CIM) consultation + 30-minute feedback session: £150
Preparation of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) & Open Financial Statement: £195 per person
Preparation of Statement of child arrangements/parenting plan: £135 per person

My commitment at Jolly Mediation is to provide a supportive, fair, and transparent service, helping you through every step of the mediation process. Please don't hesitate to contact me for more detailed information or to discuss your specific needs.
