Cancellation, General Terms

Either party may request to cancel the mediation appointment, as such:

 

  • All parties are required to agree to the cancellation. If the cancellation is not agreed on by either party, the mediation appointment remains scheduled and both parties are expected to attend.

 

  • Cancellations have to be notified 7 business days prior to the scheduled mediation date. 

 

  • Failure to provide 7 business days notice of cancellation will forfeit the total mediation fee $300.00; imputable to the party who did not attend the mediation appointment. 

 

Reduction of Mediation Fees

 

If you find yourself in economic hardship, you can apply for a reduction of mediation fees.

 

The Office of Dispute Resolution (ODR) states:

 

"Fees for mediation are an obligation to a non-judicial employee/mediator and cannot be waived; however if the party is found to be indigent and there are funds available, fees may be reduced. 

 

This program is available to indigent persons NOT represented by a paid attorney OR indigent persons represented by attorneys of, or obtained through, a legal service provider."

 

If you prefer to apply for reduced fees, the following information may be of assistance. In case of doubt or questions, contact the courthouse in the judicial district you will be filling. 

 

Important Infomation

ODR Policies and Procedures establishes a Fee Cap on State-Pay vases for indigent parties. The cap is set a 4-hour /6-month cap for mediation on unless you provide me with a request justifying going over the cap.
