The thing is I can’t give you a concrete answer for costs because it will vary by agency/what agency you use and how quickly the terms of the final are agreed upon/reached. Usually it is paid like lawyers are – retainers are used or if you are in a hard place financially payment plans can be worked out. Sometimes the ex spouses can split the cost of mediation as well.
