Room hire

Liz hires office space on an ‘as needs’ basis.  The costs of room hire incurred by Liz are charged to clients, in addition to Liz’s professional fees.  Some solicitors are able to provide a meeting room, free of charge, for their clients to meet with Liz.  If this is your situation Liz will be happy to travel to your solicitor’s office to meet with you.

Liz will book the most affordable and convenient rooms that are available for your appointments with her.  Typical room hire costs (depending on location) are:

- $100 to $150 for Pre-mediation and Assessment Interviews

- $330 to $550 for Mediations

Liz is happy to conduct Pre-Mediation & Assessment Interviews with people outside the Canberra / Queanbeyan region via video-conferencing, in order to reduce travel costs.  Liz can talk with you about this option at the time that you book your Pre-Mediation and Assessment Interview.

Reading of supporting documentation

In most mediations there is no need for Liz to read supporting documentation (other than any current court orders and protection orders).  If the reading of supporting documentation is needed for your mediation Liz will charge each party for any materials they ask her to read beyond the first 10 A4 pages.  Liz will not charge any fees for reading current court orders and protection orders.

Payment arrangements

Payment for room hire fees, travel costs and any required reading is required at least 7 business days prior to an appointment.

Payment of Liz’s professional fees is required at (or before) the commencement of an interview or mediation.

Payment can be made by direct deposit to:

Account name: Keogh Mediation
BSB: 082 926
Account number: 29 980 2111

Liz’s professional fees can also be paid by credit or debit card at the commencement of an interview or mediation.

Cancellation fees

A cancellation fee of $200 will be charged for any appointment that is cancelled with less than 3 business day’s notice.

For mediation appointments the cancellation fee will be payable by the client who cancelled the mediation (or divided equally between the clients, if cancelled by both clients).

Room hire fees may not be refundable if an appointment is cancelled. Travel costs will only be refunded if the appointment is cancelled prior to Liz’s departure from Canberra.
