Guidelines for fees for court-based mediation convened by a Judicial Registrar

Up to four hours of funding is available for representation (including Independent Children’s Lawyers) in court-based mediation convened by a Judicial Registrar.

An additional hour (up to 5 hrs) is available where there are exceptional circumstances that extend the mediation time. Exceptional circumstances include:

  • where a party is Aboriginal,
  • where a party has a cognitive impairment,
  • where a party requires an interpreter, or
  • where there are more than three parties to the proceedings.

Note: The additional hour in fees is only available for court-based mediation convened by a Judicial Registrar and does not apply to mediation outside court.
