I’ve been separated for 5mths now and I live with my parents & 2 boys aged 13 & 10, while my house gets refurbished. I’ve recivced this letter regarding mediation, abit confused when we sorted it out through solicitors about the boys contact but no reply from his solicitor regarding this. But he has been keeping to the contact agreement every other weekend?
My hub has made it very hard and has gone to the lowest point of clearly out bank accounts and closing them. I don’t get any ££ from him and I’m now working around my boys.
is it worth me ringing up and asking when I thought it was all sorted?
It’s not all sorted if you’re not getting any money from him. Mediation is no bad thing. It should be near to where the kids permanently reside, and it shouldn’t cost you anything. You don’t have to go after all. Phone the mediators and try to find out a bit more and be sure you’re not being asked to pay towards it, and then see how you feel. All you’ll say at the meeting is that you considered it all sorted (though you should be entitled to money from him) and then you’ll find out what his beef is. It’s possible he’s thinking of taking you to court over a family matter, which his solicitor would have told him he can’t do with mediation first. If you refuse to go he can apply for a MIAM and then take you to court. But don’t worry about the court thing yet. Sounds like he has more to lose than you have to gain.
