Greetings. First, there is no court ordered mediation for child support, only for child custody (and visitation).
Second, the mediator does not make decisions, but tries to help you both come to understandings and agreements on your children’s living arrangments. The mediator will not make any decisions or orders on her own, even if you cannot compromise. If you cannot compromise, you will have to wait for another day in court with a different judge to get a decision on custody. Best of luck.
