Family law mediation is a voluntary process in which a couple meets with a neutral third party attorney to discuss and resolve issues. Mediators provide information about the law and the legal process but does not represent either party. Mediation is a “party-centered” process to help couples reach agreements outside of the courtroom. The couple is advised to seek their own counsel to help them understand their rights and to review any agreements that have been reached.
Katie Clunen's typical mediation retainer is $5,870, which includes the court filing fee. This fee is usually split by the couple.
Ms. Clunen has received a certificate from the Pepperdine University Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution for completing training in family law mediation.
