I'm hoping you can share some insight about "private mediation."
I'm jennifer...34 years old..live in FL and have a 8 month old son named Brody. (born 10.03.2011), His father is 43 and lives in NJ. His father has NEVER seen his son.
Situation (current): We both have lawyers...he was served on 12/20/11. I am asking for child support and full custody. Father works FT and earns $80K a year. I am currently unemployed ( have been for 16 months) and I collectunemployment.
We have a private mediation scheduled for the end of this month. I have a call into my lawyer to find out why it is ot through the Court...becuase this private mediator is expensive...$225.00 for "2" hours...my portion.
Myquestion is..what can I expect during this mediation? Also, do you think its possible to be done with all this? I also am very firm about a few things. 1. I want my child support taken directly from his paycheck. no other way. 2. I want sole custody. I have been the only one taking care of my son down here in FL. I have no family so it is just me day in and out. Do you think this will happen?
