How Long Does Mediation Generally Take?
In my office, we have two-hour mediation sessions. Usually, it takes about six to nine sessions, assuming everyone is diligent about providing all their documents. I want to make sure that everyone has everything they need to make an intelligent decision, including all the financial records and tax returns. Sometimes, one spouse has solely been responsible for filing the taxes. I want to make sure everyone has tax returns for the last two to three years.
I make sure that we talk about any children. I give the parties a questionnaire to answer independently so that at the next session, we can talk about what’s in the best interest of their children. Every time they come in, there’s another assignment. At some point, I draft a memorandum of understanding. I’ll email it to both parties and tell them to send me (and the other party) their critiques. Once they agree, I’ll make whatever changes they need. I then send them off with their documents. They are free to take it to an attorney to review.
