There is no strict rule about how many family mediation sessions are needed before a settlement is reached. That’s because each case is very different. The length of the process is also shaped by the nature of the issues being mediated.  

As an example, an ‘All Issues Mediation’ case is one involving sorting out property, finance and parenting arrangements. And this will tend to be more complex than one in which only the finances or parenting need to be mediated.  

Typically, however, couples will find they attend between three and five sessions before the process concludes.
