HOW DO I SCHEDULE A MEDATION?
To determine if mediation is a good fit for your situation, call us at (509) 888-0957, press 2. Our Intake Call Center hours are Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Our Intake Specialist will learn more about your issue and explain the process. If you decide to proceed with mediation, you will be asked to pay a $25 non-refundable intake fee. Our Intake Specialist will then reach out to the other party or parties involved. Once both parties agree to mediate, the session fee ranges from $26-$180 per 3-hour mediation session based on a sliding scale.
Mediation is a voluntary process. Even if you are not sure that you want to mediate, give us a call to learn more and explore options.
