For 18 years, CMC policy & practice is to provide community mediation services without regard for someone’s ability to pay. We mediate for free many case involving community disputes, criminal matters, small claims, juveniles and low-income families. In order to accomplish this, we charge for our administrative service – intake, screening, and scheduling.
In certain cases, we also charge for our mediation service using a “sliding scale”. Our calculation of your fee takes into account your income and family size. Our staff will tell you what your fee will be after you fill out your application and submit financial documentation.
Online Payment of Application Fee – required for all cases
To complete your application, both parties must fill out a printed application form. Please call us at 865-594-1879. If you cannot pay this fee, please talk to our staff and we will try to accommodate you.
If you’ve sent in your application, completed the intake process, and talked to our staff person to know the amount of your mediation fee, then choose one of the following payment buttons:
When you click on the “Pay Now” button, you will be taken to a secure Pay Pal webpage to complete your payment. Make sure you accurately enter the amount ($) of your fee.If you do not have a Pay Pal account, you must enter your credit card/debit card information in order to complete your payment. All such information is encrypted and is not sent to CMC. You will receive an email which documents your payment. CMC will also receive an email; we will print it and put it in your file.
