What If my Ex Doesn’t want to Mediate?
When you undergo separation or divorce, it is important to ensure that you have a settlement with your ex-partner. This is why it is important to seek assistance from a mediation service such as FM1 family mediation service to help find a settlement with your ex-partner. The process of settling for a settlement is easy of your ex is willing to try mediation.
If your ex-partner is not willing to engage in a mediation process, it may be quite challenging to reach for a settlement. It may be hard in the mid of conflict for two people to begin contemplating to begin negotiation together to sort things out.
This is as a result of the differences that may have occurred which would have affected the relationship severely, thus making it hard for such negotiations to happen.
In most cases, the easier path seems to start a legal battle in which the court is given the responsibility to sort out the problem and give solution to the settlement.
