Do I have to attend mediation with my ex-partner?

Australian family law dictates that people separating who want to split their assets or work out parenting arrangements must attend a conference to try and resolve any differences on their own before involving the courts.

You are required to attend this mediation session unless there is family violence, or clear evidence that one party is unwilling to cooperate. 

Do you have a question about family law or relationship law?
