Most likely the mediator has a conflict and cannot represent your spouse -- unless you waive the conflict, in writing.
They calculated my child support on that number and not the actual amount. I literally owe double what it should be. Can I fix this?
answered on Apr 20, 2020
Yes, you can fix this. Your child support should be based on the income as reflected on your W2 statement. You should hire an attorney to fix this for you.
Can we get a divorce in my current state(New York)?
answered on Feb 25, 2020
Yes, you probably can get divorced in New York. Have you lived in New York for more than 2 years? If yes, you can get divorced in New York. If you have only lived in New York for more than 1 year, then it depends on other facts.

You can file for a No Fault divorce (Irretrievable breakdown) now or as soon as you want to.
I don’t know the first step in divorce. We have been separated for three years, have two kids, no courts involved, no child support. We are civil with one another, work well with our kids and have nothing to share/split from married but our kids.

The first thing to look at is each party's income. If you make significantly more than your spouse, then you may have to pay spousal support. However, as stated, there are other factors that would be looked at.
