Customer Question

Despite the fact that we have no house or assets, apart from my pension, my wife keep asking about using a mediator, which is strange because she says that she is happy with the financial offer that I am prepared to offer her. How much approximately does mediation cost, who attends and what are the pros and cons?


Also, am I right in thinking that a mediator would be visited after the issue of the Decree Nisi, but before the drafting of a Financial Clean Break Order and the issue of the Decree Absolute?

Thank you for your question.

Mediation can be underataken at any point - to agree grounds of divorce or to agree the financial matters.
You will need to get a quote - but most mediators charge upwards of £100 per hour PER person - or more
However it is still a cheaper way of reaching an agreement then fighting the matter through court
