Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

    Answered . I think you asked a similar question before you had received the results of the evaluation and I annswered, describing the process of mediation. I agree with the other attorney that you should speak with a lawyer regarding the house and your child's welfare. I think I also asked you about requesting a Guardian Ad Litem. I don't know who was in the car when she tried to "jump off the car" but that is something you should also be discussing with your lawyer.

    Answered . I'm not trying to be glib, but you've got a house on the line and child welfare and custody on the line. Time to find a way to get a Florida divorce attorney to sort these issues out and advocate for your rights. He or she can also help you with your mediation questions.

    Answered . As a mediator, it sounds as if the issues here may not be ripe mediation. If you've already had mental health evaluations during a divorce proceeding there may be too many issues to resolve amicably.
