If a session is cancelled more than 72 hours before the scheduled mediation, a full refund minus $30.00 will be issued to each of the parties.

An application for reduced fees is available to every client. Eligibility must be established through an application to establish the amount of reduction. In accordance with the RCW 7.75 Ability to pay mandate, clients with no available financial resources can receive services at no cost.
