Mediation can typically be completed in a couple of weeks or a month. The length of the mediation process will depend on how many issues are being mediated and the schedules of the party and the mediator. A session can be as short as a few minutes or as long as a few hours depending on the issues discussed and the progress that is being made. The number of sessions vary from case to case, some mediations are completed in one session, other mediations need multiple sessions. The average mediation typically has three sessions.
