My husband refused to pay his half of the mediation because he "shouldn't have to pay or pay for child support." Now, after all this time and money, the judge responded that if they don’t have proof of mediation by May, it’s cause for dismissal of my case. How is it justice that a judge will throw out my case because my ex is an unemployed broke loser?
So now I can't get a divorce or move on with my life just because he doesn't feel like participating? You can't tell me this is the first time a respondent has refused to participate. I’m still confused that he has showed no interest in speaking on his behalf.
I filed for dissolution of marriage in Missouri. I did everything required of me, filed out all the forms, paid, had him served, took a focus on the kids class, and took a litigant course. We were going to do mediation until he refused to pay. I showed up with my half of the payment and ready.
