The Burnaby Mediation Centre (BMC) is pleased to announce its Family Mediation Sliding Scale Pilot Project.
In an attempt to help more families access mediation services we have decided to adopt a user-pay mediation system, we’ve called it the Burnaby Family Mediation Sliding Scale Project.
I am a firm believer in alternative dispute resolution processes and in particular, mediation. It is in your family’s best interest to avoid court, if possible.
Our sliding scale is based on income only when there are no assets. If either or both parties own real property (house, condo, land), the fixed flat rate of $250/hour will apply.
A copy of each party’s most recent tax return must be presented to the mediator to conclude the correct rate/package.
Also, for those individuals who are seeking information only sessions or if one party has chosen the mediator and is introducing the mediator to their (ex) spouse, one hour joint meetings are available. These meetings are not to be confused with the pre-mediation meetings where a meeting with each individual takes place before the mediation session. The information meetings are carried out after a 10 minute free phone consult. Total cost is $100 plus tax.
