Yes, that is correct. The court order will control, so if she is refusing to meet you half way or at an agreed upon location, then you can take her back to court and seek to hold her in contempt. You do need to make a good faith effort to mediate, so you do want to ask her for dates when she is free and can attend. If she refuses, then you can proceed to court, advising the Judge of the same.
Yes. You do not need an attorney. You shared that the decree says you need to try mediation first, so if she refuses and you do file and go back to court, you can ask the Judge to order it. In your motion, you would simply ask that the Judge send the parties to mediation, pursuant to the decree and that your good faith efforts to go, have been denied by her.

Here is a link with forms but if none of them fit, you will need to call them tomorrow morning. The clerk of court should also have the form to request it as well. I am not able to provide you with a document since it is outside the scope of the site.
