With the exception of divorce cases and court referred cases, the fee is charged to the initiator of a case. In divorce cases and court referred cases, the fee is split between the two parties.
The Intake Coordinator sends out an invoice once mediation has been scheduled recommending that the fee be paid in advance or brought to mediation. If the fee is not received in this manner, the Exeuctive Director sends out a second notice to the party or the party's attorney.
No fee is charged if an individual cannot afford to pay such a fee. This determination is at the discretion of the Intake Coordinator.
NCM reserves the right to charge for expenses incurred, such as airfare.
It is the policy of NCM to charge a $50.00 fee if the party(ies) cancel with 24 hours of the scheduled mediation time.
Northern Community Mediation reserves the right to decline providing mediation services to individuals who have not paid for previous mediation services.
