What is the job of a certified mediator?
Section 154.002 of the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code says:
It is the policy of this state to encourage the peaceable resolution of disputes, with special consideration given to disputes involving the parent-child relationship, including the mediation of issues involving conservatorship, possession, and support of children, and the early settlement of pending litigation through voluntary settlement procedures.https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/CP/htm/CP.154.htm
It continues by giving a definition of ‘mediation’, as well as a clear directive about the mediator’s role:
(a) Mediation is a forum in which an impartial person, the mediator, facilitates communication between parties to promote reconciliation, settlement, or understanding among them.https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/CP/htm/CP.154.htm
(b) A mediator may not impose his own judgment on the issues for that of the parties.
While the state of Texas has no official standards for mediators, we adhere to common training and experience guidelines. Learn How to Become A Texas Mediator here

How much does mediation cost?
To secure each appointment, a $50.00 non-refundable administrative fee will be assessed. This fee does not count towards the cost of any sessions booked.
A typical session (allotted 2.5 hours) costs $400.00. Full-day sessions: $750.00. Once you move to book a mediation, the specifics of our payment schedule will be explained.
For more intricate conflicts, multiple appointments may be booked ahead of time. Fees for multiple bookings are decided on a case-by-case basis.
Mediation via video chat costs $200.00 per session.
Note: It is customary for the parties to a mediation to split costs evenly, unless they have mutually agreed to another arrangement.
