FAQ

Why does mediation work?

Mediation is a non-adversarial process where the parties make the important decisions regarding how they want to move forward. Mediation focuses on the future instead of the past. Parties meet together and separately with the mediator as they discuss issues and work together to reach agreements.

Why should I schedule a consultation?

Scheduling a mediation will help you determine whether mediation will work for your situation. It will also prepare you for a successful mediation experience. Consultations take place in-person or through online-video.

How does mediation work in the age of COVID-19?

Social distancing is a must for all of us right now. Through online-video meetings, parties are able to meet together without having to be physically present. Right now, all consultations and mediations take place through online-video meetings in order to protect our clients.

How much does mediation cost?

The fee for couples or divorce mediation is $1,000.00. This includes two 2 hour sessions as well as writing the Memorandum of Understanding for the parties to review and sign. The Memorandum of Understanding describes the agreements reached in mediation. If additional sessions are needed, fees are $200.00/hour and all sessions are 2 hours in length. Most of our clients get everything done in two sessions. However,  additional sessions are available and up to the parties if they feel they need more time to adequately address all the issues they are dealing with.

In divorce or legal separation, most of our clients don’t have or want to use attorneys because of the adversarial nature of the process and to save on costs involved in a divorce. In this case, Keiter Mediation can prepare court documents based on agreements made in mediation and will also help the parties with self-filing. The fee for this service is $1,000.00 and can be paid at the time of mediation or when the parties want to start the filing process.  We can help you from start to finish.

What is the process to becoming a court-approved mediator?

The first step to becoming a court-approved mediator is to attend a course that has been approved by the MCLE committee of the Oklahoma Bar Association. All mediation courses taught by Keiter Mediation are approved in this respect and meet the training requirements of the District Court Mediation Act.

After completing training, participants will conduct or observe several mediations in order to be court-approved depending on whether you are being certified to be a family or a civil, commercial and employment mediator.

Why is this the time to sign up for mediation training?

This is a time when everyone is having to stay in place. Mediation training courses are being offered through online-video which allows you to continue to grow in your career opportunities, earning potential, and personal conflict-resolution skills. You are investing to be your best!
