Please make sure to click on the “Additional Guest” field to add your spouse’s email to the calendar appointment so that reminders will go to both of you.

We typically book about 10 – 14 days out, so if there is a particular time/day that works best, you should probably hold it. But, remember, we need your homework documents emailed to us AT LEAST 10 BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION.

Provided you have both reached agreement on all major items (division of assets and debts, spousal maintenance, and if you have minor children: parenting time, child support, holiday schedule and division of kids’ expenses), you would qualify for our discounted Mediation Lite document preparation only package, which includes:

With minor children: $4,500.00

We prepare the majority of your documents in advance. Then we will meet with both of you together in up to a 1 hour phone or video meeting to complete the documents and go over all your agreements. We then provide written instructions on how to finalize and file everything, which you do at the court filing counter. Any meeting time in excess of 1 hour will convert into an hourly rate of $325.00, billed in 15-minute increments. Any time required because full agreement was not reached prior to signing up, will be billed at the hourly rate of $325.00.
