What is Mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary and informal process. The goal of the Mediation is to facilitate discussions between parties and assist in the negotiation process so that a mutually acceptable resolution can be reached. As the Mediator, Mr. Clements will not provide legal advice, testify or present your case in court. A Mediator also has no authority to make decisions, impose settlements or require concessions by any party.
Mr. Clements charges $220.00 per hour for Family Law Cases and $250.00 per hour for Probate, Guardianship and General Civil Cases. This fee will be divided between the parties, unless the court has ordered otherwise or you both agree to an alternative arrangement.
There is a one (1) hour minimum charge once the mediation has begun on the date and time scheduled. There is no cancellation fee if the mediation is cancelled prior to the beginning of mediation. Mr. Clements does not charge for travel to any Mediation site in Volusia County.
During the pandemic, Mr. Clements is mainly conducting mediations through ZOOM Video Conferencing. Using ZOOM Video Conferencing, joint sessions, separate caucus sessions and confidentiality are maintained in the same manner as if Mediation were in person. Mr. Clements also can prepare the written Mediation Agreement and can share it with the parties during Mediation.
If you wish to have In-Person mediations, Mr. Clements will travel to your office. Adherence to CDC protocols is required.
If you schedule Mediation through ZOOM Video Conferencing, Mr. Clements will forward a ZOOM invitation to you.
