Mediation Training Hours
$200.00 Per Hour split by both parties (minimum two hours per session) Administrative Fee: $25.00 each side for first session only. If a party is facing severe financial hardship I offer a sliding scale in family law cases with each side paying an hourly rate equal to 4 times that person’s hourly wage up to a maximum of $100 an hour. Unemployed pay $20 an hour. For counties, except Linn County, payment for a session must be paid in advance and arrive in the mediator’s office before a mediation will take place.
