Mediation request... how long do I give was created by gavin1980
Hi all.. hope you can help .. anyone who doesnt know my previous posts.. I have been trying to establish contact with my kids.. I left my stbx as i wasnt in love anymore and i didnt want kids growing up seeing us break apart...(no vilence, abuse or usual bad stuff) Im still pay the mortgage to make sure my kids and my stbx stay in a nice house, I pay high maintenance (not csa requested) to make sure they still have the best but im getting no contact now. My lawyer sent a mediation request 3 weeks ago and a follow up request last week but we are getting blanked.

Im getting next to no sleep every night as i miss my kids so much and only want to go to court as a very last option. Has anyone any ideas what to do now or is court the only option....

Thanks

I would make an appointment to see a mediator on your own (the first appointment is usually on your own anyway to explain the process) and the mediator can then write and invite your wife to attend on her own to explain the process. If she declines the invite there is no option other than to apply to court.

Thanks fiona, never thought of that.. good idea. If and when I do go to court it shows I have been making every attempt to see the children and sorts things out.

Thanks again
