What is Mediation?

Types of cases mediated see FAQ

 

Fees

Fees are based on several factors;– call or email us for a quote

  1. Has a lawsuit already been filed?
  2. If a lawsuit has already been filed, what court and what county was it filed in?
  3. Does any person in the dispute have an attorney?
  4. What kind of issue is in dispute, and how long will mediation take?
  5. If money is at issue, what is the dollar amount being demanded?

 

Cases in Litigation

McLennan County Civil disputes where one or more parties have retained an attorney, and/or a lawsuit has been filed:

$250.00 per party, half-day (4hours or less)

$300.00 per party, full-day (up to 8 hours)

 

Family Law disputes where one or more parties have retained an attorney, and/or a lawsuit has been filed:

$300.00 per party

 

Cases not in Litigation and from Precinct Courts, where no party has an attorney

$100.00 per party (up to 8 hours)

 

Additional Fees 

Because McLennan County filing fees are part of the Center’s financing, cases outside McLennan County (where we do not receive any county funding) pay an additional $100.00 per party.
A surcharge may be assessed on cases where the amount in controversy is more than $50,000 and/or the complexity of the case warrants a surcharge.

If the Executive Director interviews child/children prior to a family law mediation, there will be a small additional fee.
Scheduling fees must be paid in advance and are non-refundable.

 

Waiver/Reduction of Fees

Where economic necessity can be demonstrated scheduling fees may be reduced. Contact us for information.
