mediation isn't cheaper per hour than solicitors but it can work out cheaper in the long run because it doesn't involve going to court. Once you have the solicitor preparing endless court documents and then a barrister for a day it becomes extremely expensive.
mediation can also help you achieve an outcome that you both feel is more or less fair, which courts often don't.
I agree with Fiona, though, that Collaborative Law is probably best if you can manage it.
