Can someone explain to me why form A in mediation has an expiry date? What does this mean?

If you don't issue before expiry, you have to do another MIAM.

Issue what to who and when does it run from? Does the fact that I understand none of this mean my mediator is shit?

If you did not settle financial issues at mediation, and therefore want the Court to deal with those issues, you must issue form A in the court dealing with the divorce.

If the mediator signature on your form A is more than 4 months old when you issue, you are supposed to go back to try mediation again.

Jesus. FFS. So if we do go back before the four months is up does the date get modified and the 4 month countdown start again?

The mediator would usually only sign the form A when mediation breaks down or is deemed unsuitable. If you do go back then I would expect them to do another if appropriate.

We have had one joint session and then a big gap. Mediator has advised us that the form ‘runs out in two months’ and is sending us both a copy in case we want to go to court. I want to carry on with mediation.
