If you are assessed by us as eligible for Legal Aid (not available in our Malmesbury or Yate offices), the whole mediation process will be free to you. In addition we are able to provide a MIAM and one joint mediation session, without charge to the other party.
In all Legal Aid cases we shall be acting as mediators for Compass Resolution Ltd and we are obliged to apply fees approved by Compass Resolution Ltd to privately paying clients (i.e. to the person not eligible for Legal Aid). These fees are £70 for the outcome letter following the first mediation meeting and for the second mediation meeting and subsequent meetings £150 per session (£120 if child only mediation) and £150 per document for summary documents. It is necessary for us to charge these fees in order to meet the increased administrative and management costs associated with Compass Resolution Ltd and the requirements of the Legal Aid Agency.
