Madam, what at the first I say is that you require a good advocate to help you to cross over your problems. I do not know if the mediation is initiated under domestic violence Act case and the mediator is a judge. Or in some cases, mediation goes to mediator, who is generally some experience advocate. He can give suggestions, but cannot order you to give divorce to your husband because he wants it and you should take some amount and demand you how much amount you want. It is only a suggestion from mediator. It is upto you whether you accept it or not. If you do not want to give divorce and if you feel you are innocent and your husband's demand for divorce is unreasonable, you can contest the case as and when he files the divorce case. Now coming to Domestic violence case, if the mediation fails, the matter will be sent back to the court. Whatever happened is not informed to the coourt. Just failure report will be sent. If you demand some money and husband refuses in the mediation, that also will not be informed to the Court. The mediation proceedings will be kept out of the knowledge of the court. So, you can freely say whatever you want to say to the mediator without any pressure. If you feel any pressure from mediator, you can tell to him that please do not pressurise me. Coming to the important point. Now you should think yourself, whether your marriage can be sustainable or not. Whether you can stay with him or not. In domestic violence case, you are entitled to maintenance for yourself and your girl daughter. You are also entitled to get residential rights in the matrimonial home, where husband is living. If you feel any threat to you and to your daughter after going into the matrimonial home, you can also ask for protection orders. But at the end I suggest you to find out a good advocate to advice you at each and every step so your and your daughter's interests will be protected and if your husband is amenable to reason, to restore your marrige life. Regards.
