IL FAQ/Mediation Issues

Your mediation costs will be based on an hourly fee and initial retainer. These fees will be charged for all mediation sessions (except the initial consultation), time spent on reviewing and drafting documents, telephone consultations, e-mails, and consultations by the mediator with your divorce attorneys or other advisors in the process. The cost of mediation is generally significantly less than if you each hired divorce lawyers to represent you in your divorce without using mediation.
