I am a Marine and I filed for a uncontested divorce. I don’t want anything in the house at all. I don’t want to fight about a thing. We have a 17 month old daughter. I informed her of our mediation at the legal office on base. She called me 3 days before the appointment to tell me that she would not be there or do anything I ask of her towards the divorce. So, I am going to show up to mediation and have everything all figured out in my head but no spouse to talk things through. What happens next?
The mediation process is voluntary; parties attend and participate in the mediation sessions of their own volition. If your spouse is not ready to come to the table or to discuss the issues in good faith, you will want to explore your alternatives. Even if you begin using another system, such as traditional representation, you can always suspend an adversarial process and use mediation at any point.
