How much does it cost?
For many people in Plymouth Mediation is FREE as a result of Legal Aid being available for Mediation (you can no longer get Legal aid for going to court except in extreme circumstances). Even if you are not eligible your ex-partner might be, in which case you will be provided with the initial meeting and the first mediation for free, although you will need to share the cost of the summary at the end of the first meeting and pay for any subsequent meetings at our normal rates.
The good news is unlike other Plymouth Mediators we do not charge Vat on any of our services
