I will like to go for mediation for sorting out finance matter.
My husband in his Ancially relief application has said we have been to mediation but thats a lie, as we havent ever been to mediation.
Due to finance constraint I am self repreenting, I am happy to give my husband his equal share and be done with divorce and move on.
His solicitor is GREAT WHITE SHARK, as there was domestic violence non-mol order on him, and he counter filed for harrassment, though everything is sorted now coz I accepted his undertaking and gave cross undertaking, is it possible to approach court directly that I want mediation first, where we can discuss with the mediator independently, like that I dont have to see him, and if mediation breaks down then we can try the other route i.e. back to his solicitor.??
From what you''ve said it probably wouldn''t work. Don''t worry. I m in a similiar position but I went to mediation which failed as ex was so aggressive the mediator stopped it.
You are now going down court route, don''t be put off even if you are self repping. His solicitors are still going to have to negotiate with you and will be told by judge at first appointment. Stay strong. Post on here. Just know your facts. They will try be clever but just play the game.
