  • If the mediation is cancelled, adjourned or postponed more than 30 days prior to the scheduled date for the mediation, there will be no cancellation fee.
  • If the mediation is cancelled, adjourned or postponed within 30 days of the scheduled date for the mediation (but more than 2 weeks from the scheduled date of the mediation), the cancellation fee will be half of the mediator’s fee, plus any non-refundable disbursements.

Cancellation fees are due and payable immediately upon the cancellation, adjournment or postponement of the mediation.  In the event that the mediator is able to book other paying work on the date that the mediation was scheduled to occur, Schmidt Mediation Group will refund half of the cancellation fee to the parties.

If a mediation is cancelled, each party will be responsible for half of the mediation fee unless the parties agree otherwise.
