Thank you for your advice. I don't know if his lawyer will be present during mediation. He used this lawyer to represent him for a contempt issue against him. They pulled all sorts of stunts to make the issue drag out forever and the lawyer never appeared in court with him, and he eventually remedied the situation to my satisfaction and I dropped the charge.
I also don't know how the post divorce required mediation works. I will find out.
The attorney I used for the divorce and contempt issue did a great job for me and got me an awesome settlement...I mean awesome. But his bedside manner is awful, I don't like him personally, and he is EXTREMELY expensive. You get what you pay for...LOL I am going to interview several other lawyers to get a feeling for what's out there. Would it be a bad idea to switch lawyers from the one that wrote the original separation agreement and got me such a great settlement??
All I know is NPDx is a sick bastard and will stop at nothing to ruin me. I suspect I will pay for a lawyer to be with me during mediation even though my journey has given me a great pair of shiny red bitch boots I can wear and have worn, but they still sometimes fall off!
