I have filed divorcce. court have asked to go for mediation . should i need to personally attend the mediation or if an advocate attend on my behalf to know the there terms would be enough.
if an adovcate can attend do i need to give POA for mediation to him or no need.?
i have to go abroad asap. but i am sure other party will try to hold me back.
Could i fight the case at the event of mediation fails with an advocate as an POA for the case?
here there are two things to be focused Mediation and Divorce Case.
I am ready to give POA for the divorce case but am hesitated to give POA for mediation.
what shuold i do . Please advice
The above two advices are wrong. Please dont follow them.
Your question of whether to attend mediation or not or send advocate or appoint power of attorney is asking like :I am hungry, can I feed my neighbour, or POA or lawyer?: If you want to settle the case,
1. Move ahead with divorce via MCD, fix a price for your freedom, formulate agreement for terms and conditions of MCD, then you will have to attend mediation, say it yourself to the mediators and then the judge.
2. If you want to continue with marriage ie if your wife cooperates and she is intending to mend her ways and adjust with you, then too you need to put this on record with the judge by attending the mediation,
Asking POA or your advocate to attend mediation will only ensure one more loooooooonnngggg date. Some more time is wasted. Instead of that talk to your folks, if you all decide to finish matter, then arrange money, keep it ready, go to mediation, ask how much she wants, and follow what I have suggested.
Dont waste time. Time and tide wait for none.
