Divorce and Custody Mediation by Stephanie Barkett, MS Law, MS MFT

 

 

Flat Rate Divorce Mediation Services: $3350

Many clients want the comfort of a fixed price. This fee is paid in 3 installments. This service includes an hour and a half information, "opening" court case meeting, up to 4 hours of mediation, the completion of all dissolution documents and settlement agreement, signing meeting where all documents are notarized and the filing of all documents. (excludes the court required filing fees)

During our mediation sessions we will cover all of the following areas of a divorce and/or child custody:

  • Child Custody and Parental Tme Agreements
  • Spousal and Child Support           
  • Property and Asset Division
  • Marital Settlement Agreement Information
  • Filing of all required documentation for a divorce and child custody.

 If you have begun your divorce but would like help with mediation or finalizing your divorce, we can do this at our hourly rate of $250.00/Hr.

Please note, unlike other attorneys and mediators I do NOT require an "escrow" account or a retainer. My clients pay at the time of service. In addition to our flat rate fee the county has separate filing fees that approximate $435-$500. 

Each individual mediation is unique and the time it takes varies. However, most mediation sessions can be completed in 3-4 hours. The length of time is influenced by the participants. If you need more than 4 hours of mediation there will be an additional charge of $250/Hr. On average we will complete your entire divorce in 45 days.

Document Preparation Only: Prepaid $1850

If your preference is to have assistance with preparing all documents required for an uncontested divorce, you require no mediation and all agreements are made between you and your spouse, we can complete all the paperwork for you and file them.  

These documents will include:

Petition and all opening documents: $375

Providing Required Finanicial Disclosures: $150

Preparing Maritial Settlement Agreement: $750

Final Judgement Packet for the Court: 575

Do It Yourself Divorce: $1200

This service includes providing all required court documents that you complete yourself, a completed maritial settlement agreement based on agreements made between spouses. Clients do all of their own negotiating and agreements privately, between the two of them, and complete and file all their own court documents. The mediator will review all completed documents for accuracy.
