Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with settlement of property and parenting plans outside of courts and mediation? My ex and I had started the process of mediation however after his individual appointment earlier in the week he is now trying to convince me that we don't need to settle via this method. My gut is telling me that we should so we get everything in writing and also so things don't get heated but just wanted to hear other people's opinions or experience with the matter to help me make a decision. Things so far have been peaceful between us and I really want to keep it that way but I don't want to make the wrong move either. Thanks in advance!!
