The short answer is yes, in most divorce mediations, you pay for a session at a time. But there will be additional charges for preparing court papers which will be levied before each document is dealt with. You may also have to pay your mediator a small retainer fee when you hire them to cover costs which they may incur between mediation sessions. This pay as you go approach means you can proceed with your divorce as and when finances allow. So after agreeing the way forward via your mediation sessions, you can hit the pause button on proceedings before paying the fee charged for having your settlement agreement prepared.
