The purpose of mediation is to bring the parties together and hopefully resolve the issue without having to go through the long drawn out court process. The mediator is neutral and tries to come to an agreed upon resolution, so that both parties are at least comfortable with the decision. It is not binding and is a way to try and resolve this as soon as possible. If there is an order by the court that your ex is failing to comply with, you need to take him back to court to enforce the order and/or to hold him in contempt for violating it. If he has not paid the 50% upon you providing him proof of what is owed, send him a letter, advising that if he fails to pay, you will take him back to court and seek that he pay your attorney fees as well.
