How many sessions will I need?

There is no hard-and-fast rule about how many mediation sessions are needed before a settlement is reached, because each case is very different. The length of the process is also shaped by the nature of the issues being mediated.  

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

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