Sliding Scale for Divorce and Post-Divorce Mediation:

Judy Larkins is committed to helping the families of her Denver Metro community.  She believes that everyone should have access to the services they need.   

The following discounts are offered for mediation cases only to households with income in the ranges listed below, as demonstrated by the previous year's tax return and a current pay check stub.  Discounts are based on the total household income.  Discounts are not retroactively applied to fees that have already been processed.  Only one discount is offered in any given case.  If a discounted fee is processed based upon verbal representation of income and subsequent documentation reveals that the household income does not qualify, the difference between the discounted rate and the accurate rate shall be retroactively processed as a fee to the credit card on record.

  • Under $40,000 total household income = 30% discount for applicant's hourly rate
  • Between $40,001 - $60,000 total household income = 20% discount for applicant's hourly rate
