Any outcome reached will be drawn up by the Mediator into a document called a Memorandum of Understanding. This can be converted into a Court Order if there are divorce proceedings and the assistance of a Solicitor will probably be required, though the work involved should be minimal. It is possible, and sometimes beneficial, for one or both parties to engage a Solicitor at any stage in the process and take legal advice as the Mediation progresses.

Usually 2-3 sessions of about 2 hours each should be sufficient, though sometimes it can be a lot shorter or longer depending on the issues.
The Meditor's fees are £125 per hour plus VAT per party.
The Mediation can take place at offices in Benenden, Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone or at another agreed office location.
Evening and weekend appointments can be arranged.
