We've been separated 3 years. 3 children with me. At second stage mediation (I initiated it) where we have an appointment for both of us coming up. I have seen my solicitor once with upcoming further appointment but not yet done decree nisi.
MIAMS was done separately and I was told yesterday he'd agreed to another appointment for both of us.
Haven't talked for several weeks and he's ignored children's facetime. Offered to take them down but a few weeks ago he said he'd come and get them in half term (about 6 weeks from when he said this).
I'm used to this behaviour which happened throughout the marriage. He goes on silent stints (days/weeks) and suddenly reappears as if nothing happened. He did not reply to my last two texts (about 3/4 weeks ago) so I've not tried to start any new communication up.
Should I be trying to find an 'amicable' way to communicate before mediation together (which I'm obviously dreading) or just leave it to the meeting and solicitor?
You've tried communicating. He's ignored you. I'd leave it until the meeting or with the solicitor. Take screenshots of the texts just in case you need evidence.
Thanks noego, I can't do any more really. I was going to mention about what I was going to propose in mediation, so he wasn't worrying too much but it's probably not a good idea.
