I went with what my lawyer told me. He said he never gives blanket recommendations of mediation or arbitration. It's case specific. When he first told me this- I thought "sure sure, you just don't want to tell me who the mediator is so you get more $$$ out of me"...but that was dumb. And totally untrue. He wanted to get to know my ex and me. He told me that formal mediation wouldn't work for us- because my ex was mad at me and unreasonable. And I was making decisions from a place of guilt. That's my story.

I do tend to give the advice on here that if the other party is unreasonable. Then just move the file to trial. But Kinso is right- it's my bias coming through.
