The Mediation Process

 

Your Mediation process will begin with a Free consultation by phone.  

 

Once your situation has been assessed, your Mediator(s) will go over the details of the Mediation process. This will include:

  • Cost and payment

  • Scheduling the times to meet.

  • Answering questions and concerns you might have.

 

PRICE STRUCTURE

 

The first session is $225 and $100.00 per hour for additional sessions or correspondence.

  • The first face to face session is scheduled for two hours. 

  • Additional Sessions & Correspondence

    • Time spent with the parties face-to-face

    • Time required to study documents and research issues

    • Correspondence (e.g., prepare draft and final agreements, and other things as may be reasonably necessary to facilitate the parties' reaching full agreement)

 

A deposit of $225 is due at the beginning of the first session. If applicable, TC Mediation will write up and send to the parties a summary of each mediation session.  After the summary has been written and sent to the parties for any corrections, additions, etc., the parties will be charged $25 per 15 minute increments for additional time spent. 

 

  • We take Cash, Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover Card.

DIVORCE MEDIATION (Pre & Post)

The average divorce handled solely in the court system is estimated to cost around $17,000.00+. Although lawyers may be included in portions of the mediation process, the cost of Divorce Mediation can be substantially less than litigation resolution.

 

For Pre-Divorce Mediation, a two hour meeting with you and your spouse will be set up to explain the process, the cost, and answer any questions and concerns you may have.  At this time you will be given a Divorce Action Plan.

 

  • Prenuptial Agreements

  • Separation Agreements

  • Parenting Plans (Pre & Post)

 

CHURCHES

A Christian approach to mediation is accomplished by applying successful mediation processes into a context of Christian ethics, biblical values, and Scriptural guidance.

 

According to the Apostle Paul, Christians are not free to sue one another before worldly courts (1 Cor. 6:5-7). Instead, they are to use the processes described in Matthew 18:15-20 and 1 Corinthians 6:1-8 to set things right. This is where we, as Christian mediators, can be extremely helpful. 

 

Resolving conflict biblically enables us to demonstrate genuine faith through our actions.  Jesus commands reconciliation with anyone that has offended you or that you have offended them ahead of public worship (Matt. 5:23-25). 

 

The Bible teaches us that unresolved conflict between Christians has serious consequences. When relationships remain broken everyone concerned continues to suffer. A dispute never affects only the parties involved. It can affect those with whom they interact (e.g., family, church leaders, local congregation, and even co-workers).
