Thanks for your question. Mediation is voluntary. If you feel this is not working tell your attorney to set the matter for trial. It may cost you more in legal time but to me that is questionable given the information that you provide.
Your lawyer works for you, if you don't want to go down this road, don't do it. Be firm in what you want in this matter. I can understand both sides here. the feeling of your lawyer may be that you were pretty close to an agreement that everybody could live with, yet close doesn't count, so maybe it's time to go in a different direction. Get some hard answers from your lawyer about what the possibilities are here and how much more to try it vs. mediation, then make an informed decision that's best for you. Remember only you know what is best for you. Here is a web site with more info for you..
