HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Uncertain? To receive a FREE 15 minute call back from Jo-Anne to discuss your matter – https://calendly.com/adrams/free-consultation
Did you know that a standard matter going to trial could cost each party well over $80,000, and that your case might take as long as 3 years (156 weeks) to be resolved? YES !
A recent survey of the Family Court System noted that it can take up to at least 97 weeks to come to trial. A more complex case can take longer and cost much more, while your life is put on hold. As a result, this can cause you enormous stress, not to mention the financial burden.
Due to the backlog of people seeking Mediation, there is a 3-6 month wait list for an appointment with government funded Mediation Services.
At ADRAMS Mediation Services, we have little WAIT list to move forward where both parties are committed to the Mediation process, and there are no risk factors. We can (where appropriate and available) book your appointment within 7-14 days.
Your Appointment to discuss your matter can be made upon availability within 24- 48 hours. Call – https://calendly.com/adrams/free-consultation
Mediation is not only a Mandatory in the Family court, the process can save you a lot of time, money and heartache if you can resolve your differences out of court. This will require BOTH parties to be committed to mediation and the process.
The Mediator will be in communication with each party prior to the day of Mediation to learn the issues and positions, and learn about the parties involved.
This will be done by written submission from each side, telephone and email and will be billed based upon the combined time of all parties. This is included in the costs of the Pre-Mediation Intake Session. The total Mediator time involved prior to the Mediation is generally in the three hour range.
For ease of our clients, our fees are packaged according to the type of work and urgency required. The time frame from initial consultation until mediation can be as little as 7-14 days upon availability and appropriate. If there are no risk or safety factors, Jo-Anne can usually book in Mediation appointments within 24- 48 hours for an actual Pre-Mediation appointment according to availability. This means for you, a much shorter waiting time until you can attend Mediation. This is also cost effective where couples are prepared to commit to Mediation. Then, we have little WAIT list to move forward.
