    I'm in the process of divorce and the house is in foreclosure. I am staying in the house until the court says I have to go. Basically I just need time to get the finances stabilized.

    The banks lawyer sent me a notice about a mediation in the case. As I have found, Florida requires the mediation to try to not bog down the courts, though as I am reading, it's quite a flop. My question is what happens if I just don't attend the mediation? I've not received any type of summons, and the lawyers letter says if I don't provide all of the paperwork they want, then the mediation will be canceled. So am I correct in assuming that if we don't do the mediation, then this would go to court as it would have anyway?

    In all likelihood, yes.

    Agree - that would be the case in this situation. (It "seems" you did go to court per your later posts.)
