How long will mediation take and how much will it cost in comparison to traditional litigation?

Viewed 611 Times 0 Comments

It is hard to generalise about costs and duration in family law cases – each one will be determined on its own facts. The length of time a case will take will depend on how many issues need to be resolved, how assets will be divided and how eager parties are to finalise their outstanding issues. If one party is not realistic in their demands, or is being obstructive, the mediation process will take longer, or may even breakdown. Equally, the costs will depend on how many professionals need to be engaged to help achieve resolution, i.e.  psychologists or doctors who may need to give evidence.
