FAQ: How Long Does Mediation Take?


The number of sessions required to complete a mediated agreement varies greatly depending upon the type of dispute and the ability of the participants to negotiate both during and outside of sessions. However, in all cases, how quickly the process moves along is determined by the participants and not by the availability of a court date.

 The average divorce agreement requires from four to six sessions with sessions typically lasting from one and one-half to two hours each.

The average workplace dispute takes four to six hours, usually within the context of a single conference.
