yes if the mediator is no longer available and there is a pressing issue then you may. However, you and your ex spouse need to agree on the mediator and it would be best to put it in writing on who you are agreeing to

Thank you for responding & this advice is helpful -- however my ex wife will never agree to anything that has to do with me -- can I offer her a choice of mediators or services and give a deadline to respond or get back to me or I will select one?
Since what I'm bringing to mediation are things she is seriously doing wrong re: the parenting plan (stopped paying private school tuition & my daughter is being kicked out and I didn't know, no longer going by our child care agreement, etc.) there 's no reason she's going to agree to anything I propose so I hope there's a way I can give her a chance to research people (or even select someone herself) -- but hope to put a deadline together so I can keep my daughter in the school.
I will be happy to provide the best feedback because your answer was quite helpful
i would give her the choice of three mediators explain the situation and ask her to choose. Yes I would give her a deadline otherwise you will have to go to court to have a mediator appointed
thank you! Positive feedback is appreciated as that is how we get credit for our responses
Thank you for the follow up information -- I am so grateful for this!
