I posted a while back on the other forum that my ex was chasing to extend her existing spousal maintenance arrangement from our court order. I had received a solicitors letter with some fairly unsubtle threats - my response was to reject her request for mediation but have now received another letter inviting me to a MIAM session?

I'm unclear of why this would help and I feel I am being setup into a process here - wondered if others had thoughts or experiences of this process and any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Your ex wife cannot make a court application unless she has first tried mediation or a mediator has determined that mediation is unsuitable for one reason or another. It is therefore just a matter of form for the mediator to contact you. Whether you enter into mediation very much depends upon whether you think your ex wife is entering into it in good faith and/or you think it is likely to be productive. Mediation usually costs money so even if you enter into mediation you will need to take a view on whether it is getting anywhere.
