What are the risks of negotiating an EPO before mediation

This answer was rated:

What are the risks of negotiating an EPO before mediation takes place during a divorce case involving abuse of spouse and children?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. I will be happy to assist you with your questions.

For EPO, you mean emergency protective order?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.

Are you asking how the EPO will effect the proceedings moving forward?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
No, my friend filed for EPO and got it for her and her children. She is undergoing a divorce process. Now the husband wants the EPO lifted and is willing to expedite mediation. What is in the best interest of the spouse with EPO ?
Customer: replied 26 days ago.
Does that make sense?

She should give the EPO for safety reasons. The divorce will proceed regardless.

They are threatening to go after her by sending motions saying she is an unfit mother. Is this a bluf?
