Divorce..Is Mediation always possible..?

Living in the state of California..Divorce is going to happen..one child under 18..almost 18..a few more weeks..How does that work for child support?.(If Ex (to be) wants to file bankruptcy, is that possible?..We both have to file..Correct?…Is mediation always the way to go? Hope to hear from those that have been through it!
Thanks!

Your child will soon be 18, so that is a non factor for child support. He can file bankruptcy, without you, although it will also hurt you. Go ahead, get the divorce, then slowly but surely pick up the pieces of your life and move on!

  1. Your husband sounds like mine. Is he refusing to give you one dime? threatening to file bankruptcy to guarantee that you won’t get any money? Telling you what an awful mother you are, so you won’t get child support? Well, he is a liar and probably a verbal abuser to you. He is still trying to control you, even though you are no longer together. My husband did the same thing.

    Mediation was a nightmare. I guess he figured the louder he yelled the more money he would save. The mediator had to threaten to call the police if he didn’t calm down. The mediator finally separated us and called the mediation off. My attorney informed the mediator that my husband was only trying to control me. The mediator told me that if my husband acts like this is court, I will come away with a lot more than my half.

    Child support is nothing. I get $100 a month for 3 children. Yea, $33 per month lasts about 1 day.

    By best advice…..get a good attorney.
