My children's father & I recently had a custody hearing in which I agreed to the mediators recommendations (which were in the end ordered by the judge) but the other party did not. He has now requested that we go to trial. I was reading the initial paperwork & it sounded as if they will not be reading the mediators report unless I supena the mediator to be there. This is a huge factor in our case. Can anyone tell me what to expect in going to trial? Do they take into consideration the mediators report, supporting documents or is it just going to be another he said she said all over again? I hate to pay a huge fee to have the mediator be there to reitterate what they might have already read in the mediators report. Any info on what to expect & how to prepare for custody trial?????
