Is mediation more or less expensive than other forms of dispute resolution?

Usually the lawyer would charge the regular hourly rate, which in our county is anywhere from $250 an hour to $450 an hour. If you're court-appointed, it is less expensive. The court sets the rate at $225 an hour. It can be less expensive in the long run if you have one half of the process already completed before you go to the next one.
