Mediation was created by Dairy Maid
Hi All

First time for me. Just a quick question, my ex is concerned that mediation doesn''t mean anything, i.e. it''s not legal so is talking about going back to court. If we do do mediation and file it in court, what weight does it have if (hopefully not) we end up back at court?
Thanks for reading.

Hi I''ve been advised by my solicitor to try mediation as unless you do the divorce will cost a lot of money and when you finally get to court the judges will not be happy. Basically its the negotiation to get to an agreement that the court will rubber stamp - you have to do this but it depends if you go the hard route or the easy route. I initiated mediation 9 months ago then ending up getting a non-mol and pulling out as my ex wouldn''t be reasonable and I didn''t feel strong enough to cope with his mind games, which set me back a bit as he challenged it and therefore delayed divorce process, I''m now hoping to try again due to the above advice though I really don''t relish sitting in the same room as him - might try shuttle mediation! Good Luck.
