We will discuss funding and fees with you from the start, before you incur any cost.
If Legal Aid is available for your case we will apply without charge to the Legal Aid Agency seeking funding.
If Legal Aid is not available for your case we can offer fixed fees and pay as you go instalments and "No Win No Fee" in suitable cases.
We will always give a clear written indication of our fees and the money we expect to pay out on your behalf during the case at the start and from time to time during the proceedings so you always know so far as is possible the costs you have agreed to incur.
Funding of Family Mediation through Legal Aid is available but is means tested.
If your partner is eligible for legal aid and you are not, you are entitled to one mediation session funded by legal aid.
Where Legal Aid is not available RMNJ provides a fixed fee service, with our fees agreed in advance.
We are happy to accept instructions to act as an independent mediator at the joint request of the parties to a dispute.
The cost of an half day mediation can be as little as £500 plus vat.
We also offer telephone and off site mediation at fixed cost tailored to your requirements and can arrange a suitable neutral venue included in the fixed fee if needed.
This is an increasingly popular part of our service since there is no better way to engage in mediation than to be represented by one of our fully certified mediators. Our detailed knowledge and understanding of the mediation process gives you the very best chance of securing a favourable solution.
We are happy to tailor a fixed fee for representation on the mediation day itself where we simply act as your “advocate”.
Where we are instructed from the outset in connection with a claim or dispute we regularly offer no win no fee arrangements which include representation at mediation as part of the process of resolving that dispute.
