The administrative filing fee for all Mediations conducted through the Texoma Dispute Resolution Center is $25 (Twenty-Five Dollars) per party. This fee is due when the parties (or their attorney) submit their documents and request a Mediation to be scheduled. The Texoma Dispute Resolution Center will NOT schedule or confirm a Mediation until this fee is paid by all parties.
Mediations are scheduled as either a half day (9am or 1pm start) or full day (9am start) session. Half day sessions typically last 2-4 hours and full day sessions typically last 6-8 hours (a lunch break is included). The fee charged for a Mediation is the same whether it is a half day or full day session. **In some cases, additional sessions may be necessary to reach an agreement.**
There are TWO fee categories for Mediations conducted through the Texoma Dispute Resolution Center. Mediation fees must be paid by all parties prior to the start of a Mediation session.
- Category A – FREE/NO CHARGE. To qualify as “Category A”, one or more of the parties involved in the Mediation has been deemed eligible for a fee waiver by either the referring court or the Texoma DRC. To apply for a Mediation fee waiver, please download and submit the FEE WAIVER REQUEST on our forms page.
- Category B – $100 (One Hundred Dollars) Per Party. All cases that do not qualify for a fee waiver are considered to have “Category B” status .
