Q: Help with divorce Mediation?

Florida

Friday my wife text me saying be ready for mediation on Tue. I was confused, checked email.

She sent me her paper work and the court sent me a mediation letter. I was supposed to make the payment, fill out a questionnaire and notorized financial affidavit 10 days prior to the mediation date.

I tried to pay it and speak with the clerks office today, but they are closed.

What options do I have? Mediation is tmmr morning at 830am.

A: First, make sure that you appear for the mediation. The clerk will allow you to pay after the fact. You should try to have ready whatever information that is needed to address the issues in your divorce. You will be able to file anything necessary after the mediation.
