Step 3 - Mediation
I asked my stbx to meet me next Friday, the 28th, to discuss our divorce. I want to have him get a recommendation from his lawyer for a mediator and I'm going to get one from mine. I'm going to suggest that we go to both and let them help us mediate the spousal support and length of time. That's all we need to settle at this point and I don't think we need our lawyers to do that for us. As long as he's reasonable that is. I've already spent $750 through my lawyer and all I've done is sign his divorce complaint. 1.5 hours to explain it and sign it and copy it - thats already $750. This will cost him a fortune if we go the long way. Anyway, talking to him and going to mediate will be another step closer to ending this nightmare.
