Preferred Mediation

Preferred Mediation is our most popular mediation model.

The main features of a Brisbane Mediations’ Preferred Mediation are:-

  • More affordable than court;
  • You select your mediator;
  • Hour long intake sessions take place for each party with their mediator – where practicable  on a day before the day of mediation;
  • If parties are making progress they can extend the time on the day and so we strongly suggest that parties leave the whole day free;
  • In family and relationship mediations each party usually contributes equally to the cost, although one party can opt to be responsible for a larger share or the full amount of the fees; 
  • To secure a mediator’s time in our diary, we require a non-refundable booking fee of $350 per party, which is deducted from the final balance payable prior to mediation;
  • Payment of the balance in full is required at least two full business days prior to a mediation or intake service;
  • Room hire is charged at $220 per day including GST; and
  • Where appropriate, after at lest one intake, s60I Certificates attract a fee of $220 including GST – unless parties have completed a mediation with us.


  • From 1 January 2023, a flat rate of $500 per hour plus GST and room hire;
  • A half day mediation (reading and preparation, two intakes and a four hour mediation) costs $3,520, including GST and room hire;
  • A full day mediation (reading and preparation, two intakes and a six hour mediation) costs $4,620, including GST and room hire; and
  • Child inclusive mediation is charged at the above rates and in addition an hourly rate is charged for the services of a child consultant.
  • Pre-reading of more than one hour and extension of mediation time will attract additional fees at the normal hourly rate.
