Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you today.
So there was no agreement reach in the December 2012 mediation and mediation is still ongoing?
Hello again, Melissa, and thank you.
The Rule you are referring to says that:
"All court-connected mediation processes must be conducted in accordance with state law and include:
(6) Suspension or discontinuance of mediation if allegations of child abuse or neglect are made until a designated agency performs an investigation and reports a case determination to the mediator;"
Your ex husband is incorrect, or his attorney is incorrect, if either one of them suggested that it was proper for the mediator not to suspend or discontinue mediation unless and until a designated agency investigated and reported back to the mediator. If that did not happen, then you can have the report invalidated. The other reasons for invalidation you proffered will just go to strengthen your argument.
Thanks for being such a highly-valued customer here. If you have any further questions about this at all, please just let me know. Thanks!
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I do have more questions but I noticed you were off-line. Maybe next time. Thanks, again.
