So, after thirteen months of legal stuff, several thousands of dollars and a couple of trips to the county court, the general opinion of the legal experts seems to be that mediation is the path to take. What a coincidence. Sixteen months ago when we split I tried to tell my ex the same thing and he disagreed vehemently and insisted he would rather take things to trial and lose everything than do what I suggested, which was mediation.
I wonder how he feels about it now? I hope he has enjoyed enriching his counsel's bank account in the process. I feel vindicated and gladder than ever that I am no longer with him.
