No, a mediator's job is simply to serve as a facilitator towards the goal of reaching an agreement. The mediator doesn't represent either side, and the mediator doesn't get to determine liability or damages. Importantly, you aren't forced to enter an agreement if you are in mediation.

I contacted the store many times and they will not let me get in contact with the owner or manager. The associate always advises me to contact them later or email. I have... View More
My wife left with my daughter last September. We are not divorced yet but she says I can not see her without being supervised. Also every time she wants to set up a visit it is concierge for her only or if she is wanting something.

I personally think it would be hard to find a judge or jury that would believe someone didn’t know they weren’t paying rent for 7 months. That being said, there might have been other things the landlord could have done instead of keeping a tenant in default for over half a year. I would talk...View More
and domestic violence. Instead of CPS giving me the kids while they do their investigation on him, they continue to allow my kids to still be in the home with him. What are some advice to getting my kids back.
