Title: Question on mediation
Post by: mommy nurse on Oct 03, 2012, 02:54:30 PM
So I have received a note form my lawyer saying that he's waiting for the court's response with the required mediation date before he can submit my Request for Orders.  Do you have any idea how many weeks or months for this mediation date to process?  I am in California.  I am very anxious.  Since the baby daddy filed for child support with the CSSD when he got denied during the first hearing we got in April, my lawyer said he will likely ask for the continuance so that the child support issue can be settled concurrently with the child custody and visitation issue.  Basing on your experience, what can likely to  happen?  Do you think I will be ordered to pay for child support even before the child custody hearing?

a lot of different things CAN happen.
CS can be ordered back to the date FILED vs SIGNED.
This is Famly Court -- for the most part, follow your attorney's advice.  They know your particular court system etc...
