 MEDIATION TERMS AND FEE SCHEDULE

FEE SCHEDULE & POLICY

 Covers the cost of the mediation session, time spent reviewing pre-mediation submissions (up to two hours), a limited amount of post-mediation follow-up, and scheduling and administration services. Full day mediation fees also include lunch. A full-day mediation session lasts up-to eight (8) hours and a half-day mediation session lasts up-to four (4) hours. Each hour thereafter is billed at a rate of $250.00 per hour, divided equally by the parties.

PRE-SUIT MEDIATION FEE

 Covers the cost of a two-hour pre-suit mediation conference in matters involving simple disputes. We believe most of these disputes can be resolved in a two-hour mediation conference. However, if a resolution is not reached but progress is made, then you have the option of scheduling another two-hour session at the same rate. 

CANCELLATION AND RESCHEDULING FEES

 After mediation is scheduled and notices of the mediation are sent, no cancellation fee shall be charged if the mediation is cancelled or rescheduled at least fourteen (14) days prior to the scheduled mediation date. Such cancellation or rescheduling must be in writing. If the mediation is cancelled or rescheduled within 14 days of the scheduled mediation date, a cancellation fee of fifty percent (50%) of the daily rate per party shall be charged to each party. If the mediation is cancelled within forty-eight (48) hours of the scheduled mediation date, the full mediation fee shall be charged to each party. 

TRAVEL EXPENSES & FACILITY FEES

 If the mediation session occurs outside Amarillo, all travel expenses are charged to the file (air fare, mileage, meals, lodging, ground transportation, etc.) and are divided equally among the parties. There is no charge for travel time unless more than 4 hours of travel is required. After 4 hours, travel time will be billed at a rate of $125.00 per hour. The parties shall be responsible for all facility costs for mediations not held at Peaceful Resolutions Offices as well as for all costs associated with lunch, food and beverages for mediations not held at Peaceful Resolutions Office. 

ADMINISTRATIVE FEES

 In the event any party utilizes a third-party administrator, then that party will be responsible for the payment of any fees (percentage or otherwise), expenses or added costs charged by the third-party administrator. 

POST MEDIATION FOLLOW-UP

 In cases in which progress is made, but the dispute is not resolved at the mediation session, there is no charge for up to 1.5 hours of post-session follow-up calls and written correspondence. All post mediation follow-up beyond 1.5 hours will be billed at a rate of $250.00 per hour and divided equally by the parties. All rules and agreements regarding confidentiality which apply to the mediation session also apply to the post-mediation follow-up. 

PAYMENT

 Mediation Fees are due on or before the day of the mediation session. Travel expenses and any facility fees, post mediation follow-up time, and related charges will be billed after the mediation session. Payment for these expenses is payable upon receipt of the bill. Payment can be made by Cash App, PayPal, cash, or check. Make checks payable to Peaceful Resolutions LLC. Tax ID number is available upon request. 

HOLDING DATES

 A party may request to hold a mediation date for up to forty-eight (48) hours from the time of the request. If the requesting party does not confirm the date in writing within 48 hours, the requested date may be given to other parties requesting the date.
