A mediator is simply a lawyer who says they are one. A lawyer who charges $1000/hr to mediate is ripping you off. There is not special training, no magic sauce, nothing that deserves such outrageous costs.
The cost is part of the tactic - They likely depend on the sunk costs of mediation affecting the male parties more than female. After you've burned $4000 for nothing, and the mediator is leaning on you with certainty that you'd never do better in Court, you'll probably fold.

As far as costs go, it sounds like a private firm if they are somehow charging $1000 per hour.
At trial, you can argue "status quo." But in TX, unless both parties agree to 50/50, the best you're gonna get is "Expanded Standard."Texas3Step wrote:We have been sharing 50/50.....
