The Dedham court has required that we go to mediation to agree upon a parenting plan and division of assets. My husband refuses to agree to a mediator. Its been four months now! What can I do?

ANSWER:

Assuming the mediation requirement was an order in an ongoing court action, your husband’s delay in choosing a mediator will be seen negatively by the Judge once there is another hearing. If you are represented by an attorney, the attorney may choose to have a hearing to deal with this issue. The order for mediation is really to benefit both of you, in the sense that there will likely be  a savings in both time and costs in resolving the issue.
