How to Get Started



We offer a 15-minute free introductory consultation to determine if Online Dissolution Mediation will work for you. The purpose of the consultation is to answer any general questions you have and to help you determine if online coaching is right for you.  The consultation can be by video or telephone.  None of the facts of your particular case or circumstances will be discussed during this meeting.


Once you decide to proceed,  use the contact form, email, or text us and let us know you would like to begin.    We will work with you to set the sessions on days and times convenient with your schedule.  Sessions are 30 minutes.  If you would like a longer session, back to back sessions may be scheduled.



Once your first coaching session is set, a retainer fee agreement will be emailed to you for signature online along with an invoice for the fee.  Payment can be made by credit card or ACH bank transfer through the secure QuickBooks system.   Payment of the retainer fee must be made 24 hours prior to your first session.



 A retainer fee of $500 is required upfront.  Coaching sessions and other services are billed at $100 per half hour.   Other services include emails, telephone calls, memorandums of the sessions, and other miscellaneous services.   Fees are charged in 10-minute intervals.




Monthly statements will be emailed to you showing all charges to date and the balance of the retainer fee available.  If a retainer is depleted, additional retainers will be required. 



Dianne will coach only one party to an action.  Whichever party books his or her coaching session first and pays the retainer fee will have priority.
