Mediation

RESOLVE Law San Diego encourages all parties to work together to resolve their case. There are 4 options listed on this Website that are intended to help facilitate the settlement process. These include mediating your case with an existing Professional Private Mediator, using the Superior Court Mediation Program, using the San Diego County Family Law Bar Association ADR panel, or using RESOLVE Law San Diego’s pro bono program.

1. Professional Private Mediators

San Diego has many excellent private mediation programs.

These are professional Mediators who can advise you about their fees and availability.

2. San Diego Superior Court Mediation program

The San Diego Superior Court offers a list of pre-approved mediators who agree to charge a reduced hourly rate for the first two hours of mediation.

Mediators on the court’s panel have agreed to charge $150 per hour for each of the first two (2) hours in a limited civil action and $250 per hour for each of the first two (2) hours of mediation in an unlimited civil action, and their regular hourly rate thereafter for court-referred mediations.  Under this program, parties compensate the mediators directly, and mediations are conducted at the mediator's office unless other arrangements are made with agreement of all parties in the case.  To search for and select mediators:
