Additional Charges

We do not charge you if we write to you, email, phone or text you.

  • There is a one-off £65 per person charge for the Open Financial Statement which the mediator draws up for clients in Property and Finance mediation.

  • There is a one-off £100 per person charge for the agreed proposals document (or Memorandum of Understanding) that the mediator draws up in Property/Finance and All Issues mediation.

  • There is a one-off £40 per person charge for the Parenting Plan document that the mediator can draw up (if clients wish) in mediation about child arrangements.

Other things to know when making a booking
  • An appointment is booked and confirmed once TVFMS receives payment – all sessions are booked and paid for in advance.

  •  There is an £80 charge for appointments that a client changes, or cancels giving less than three full working days’ notice. For clients receiving Legal Aid, in the case of non-attendance without the required notice, only one re-arranged appointment is offered.

  •  We accept payment via all major credit and debit cards (except Amex) and also via BACS.

  •  Our prices are the same, no matter which of our venues you choose.

  •  Individual tailored services, such as Quick Start Mediation (mediation starting immediately following a joint MIAM); co-mediation (where we provide a pair of mediators to work with clients on their case); mediation in a day, etc. can be arranged and a clear price quote provided. Please talk to your mediator, or to our head office in Eton.

  •  Where the mediator and parents agree, TVFMS can offer mediation sessions to give a voice to children aged 10+ in arrangements that affect them. Such sessions are for the children’s benefit and are therefore offered charitably and completely free of charge. The feedback session to parents is charged at the agreed mediation rate.

  •  We review our charges annually with changes taking effect for all clients from January 1st each year.
