There is no standard fee for mediation. Different mediators charge different rates, usually by the hour. Some mediators have a ‘sliding scale’ of fees, which means that the amount you pay depends on how much you earn.

If you can’t afford mediation, you may be eligible for public funding through the Community Legal Service. To find out more about this, see ‘The Community Legal Service’.
