Hello, thank you for your question. My name is***** am a barrister and will assist you with this issue today.
Please be aware that this is an e-mail service rather than a live chat. Sometimes there will be some delay between responses but I will try to reply as soon as possible.
Try not to worry, the fact there is some agreement as to the way forward is a positive. You should attend the hearing as directed and you can discuss the proposed agreement with the solicitor and then with the Magistrates/ Judge. It's possible that the court will be willing to make your agreement into a court order. Court isn't as scary as it sounds, most family court matters resolve by agreement.
If you don't agree to the proposed order then tell them and they will either seek to negotiate with you or the court will order some further investigations.
In terms of mediation, whist it is always helpful, apart from an initial information assessment that he will have had to attend it is totally optional. If he didn't want to pursue it then there's not a lot you can do.
I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions.
