Q: How much does Mediation cost?

A: Mediation is a professional service; our accredited Mediators have undergone a lengthy training process, so there is a cost. However, now the good news!

– If you are on Universal credit, you can still apply for Legal Aid and provided you fit the criteria, you and your former partner will be covered for both MIAMs and one session of Mediation. Your Family Mediation has accredited Mediators and is one of the few companies offering Legal Aid Funded Mediation.

– If you do not qualify for Legal aid, and your case relates to Childcare/ Child contact. Right now, for a limited time, we can apply for a voucher for you both to cover all or part of your mediation costs. You will likely qualify. So, call now for more information.

– If you are Divorcing or separating and considering Mediation for a Property and Finance case, we have outlined below the costs. Even via this route, you will save 000’s in legal fees. The average cost of a Divorce in the UK is £14,800; sorting out your issues via Mediation will save you 000’s in legal fees.

This initial confidential one-to-one meeting with the mediator is charged at £100+vat per person. Sessions last between 45 mins and 1 hour.


The joint mediation sessions are charged at £100+vat per person per hour. A typical mediation session lasts 90 minutes but, in some cases, can run for 2 hours.
