Hi Well we went to madiation and the mediator was slick. And I signed one thing and wound up with something else. I called the mediator that same day and said Iwas not happy. He assured me everything would be fixed in the final decree. So I went oto her lawyers office and it was worse. I called and went to the mediation center and the mediator and they both jerked me around. We mediated on Jan. 14 and the papers didn't get to the mediation center until Feb. 7 so Ididn't get the opportunity to recant. We had court scheduled and her lawyer cancelled it. I called the judges office and the told me it looked like it would be rescheduled for Feb. 24 meanwhile on Feb. 14 her and her lawyer went court without notifying me and got the divorced signed by a different judge. So yesterday she came to get her stuff but said the rest was my problem including my quitclain deed and a lot other items she was supposed to return to me. The cops escorted her away because you have to do that on a weekday. My question is do I have to let her have her stuff tommorrow if she dont give me mine. Can I get this mediation thrown out. I had an attorney look at it and she didnt know though she found 3 major flaws in it like wrong year date and did not notarize my wifes signature. I just don't know what to do anymore.
I wanted to recant because when we were working on page 10 they went back to page 2 and made changes and the removed it. I was very clear about what I wanted and the mediator just lied. The original I signed said no agreement was met but the mediator marked thru it and marked an agreemant was met. But I was willing to take it on the chin to keep my kids out of court and now she is pulling this crap.
Yes handwritten changes written by her lawyer not the mediator. I have 2 copies of the agreemant . One says no agreement and the other it is marked thru and and an agreemant was met. I didn't initial the change. I was willing to just let it be and go ahead and settle but I never told them that. This has been hard on my kids and I want it to end. But my plan was to show the judge what I have and tell him what happened but they went around it.
Can the cops force me to give her the stuff at this point? I have not got a copy of the final decree. I went to the courthouse and the said its not in the system yet.
u didnt answer my last question and have already billed me
