Again that is a tricky question. It depends on the parties and the problem. The less complex the problem, the faster the mediation. As a way to gauge timing, the average divorce mediation involving children takes between 4-6 hours.
One way to reduce the amount of time spent at mediation is to have a clear understanding of the situation/problem and have a proposal ready. This helps establish at the offset a baseline of where the parties stand.
Another way to reduce the amount of time at mediation is to come into the mediation believing that it is possible to find a solution to the problem. Mediation is most successful when the parties believe that a settlement is not only possible, but probable.
