The period, scheduling and time plan for any set of mediation meetings is determined at the beginning by the parties. Generally the period will be based on the complexity of the matter in dispute as well as the number of parties involved. It is not unusual in family matters for mediation to be successful after only four to seven meetings.
The costs and expenses related to mediation can be fixed and set out by mutual agreement with the parties. A standard set of mediation meetings for non-commercial matters would be charged out between € 120 and € 280 per hour.
