I have my mediation tomorrow and I'm a little nervous. What can I expect? What are the chances of ending this whole nightmare tomorrow?
My Mediation is tomorrow, what to expect?? (Florida)

The IC representative and their attorney (if they have one) in another room. The mediator runs in between the 2 rooms. Each side tells the mediator their side and the mediator tries to get the two sides to meet. Unless an agreement is reached and signed, nothing that happens at the mediation is binding. The mediator does not have any say in what happens.
If it doesn't settle at mediation, it will go to hearing before the judge. Or many times it will still settle before the hearing. Just remember, neither side HAS to settle. The judge cannot force either side to settle the claim. The judge can decide specific issues but not settlement.
