Every Court and every Judge is different with how they handle their mediators. Some take the mediator's proposals with a grain of salt, while others follow their recommendations almost without question. A bad mediator can really make your case a nightmare in Family Law Court. Speak to the mediation office and/or the Judge (or his/her clerk) to see if you can use a different mediator. Hopefully if you explain that the mediator is not listening to reason and not giving you a fair chance, the Court will allow for a different mediator, or will let you know that they are not giving the mediator's opinion much weight. You can also subpoena the mediator to testify at your hearing in some cases so that you can cross-examine him/her and show how ignorant they are being. I would definitely recommend contacting an experienced lawyer to assist you in this regard.See question
Also will there be an impact in the child support system and family court mediator sessions?
So far, at least in California, Family Law Courts seem to be holding up just fine despite the shocking cuts that have been made in the judicial system. Personal injury courts are basically stuck in the Twilight Zone. But Family Law and Employment Law cases seem to be hanging in there just fine. Knock on wood...See question
The insurance company is trying to start settlement but not sure if I should take such low amount if I can find some strong factors
I am confused as to how the person could be insured if they didn't have a license. Most insurance policies that I am aware of have a provision that states that failure to maintain a driver's license is grounds for denial of coverage for an accident. I could be wrong and this might not apply to all insurance policies. However, if the insurance company is saying they are providing coverage then take advantage of it and settle the case for the reasonable value (without regard to whether or not the other driver has or had a license or not) and move on with your life. Either way, you should definitely hire an attorney.

If I understand your situation correctly, this does not seem like a question that is meant for or in need of a lawyer response. I mean it just sounds logical that they would deny you for ignoring them or apparently failing to comply with their protocol. If that denial is something that is a policy that your new job states is a terminable offense, then I am not seeing that they did anything wrong. Having said that, I have had a LONG day and admittedly only skimmed your question and may not fully understand it. You may want to try explaining the situation to the person in charge of hiring/firing you and since it was a simple mistake or something that was understandably overlooked I would think they would be forgiving if you have been a good employee for them up to this point. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Best of luck.See question

I believe the language could be structured in a way to act as a release as to prior wrongs. I would need to see it and recommend you not sign it without having a lawyer review it.See question

The short answer is that you most likely do not have to provide them with any info. Generally, if you were going to make a claim and recover money from the third party then they would be entitled. But in your case, I see no reason for you to have to jump through their hoops. You may want to read your insurance policy to be safe though.See question
