Mediations are a per session fee, and the fee is split between parties. Individuals who are low-income may request a financial hardship application.

Mediation can be scheduled by phone, wherein clients will discuss issues that they wish to address with an intake counselor. The counselor will determine if the situation is appropriate for mediation. This phone call may last 15-20 minutes, and callers are advised to have the current mailing address and phone numbers for the other person or people in the dispute.

Note: Mediation cannot be used to calculate or modify child support.
