If you do not have urgent short-term needs, or you are already operating under a temporary separation agreement, but further progress has stalled, then at some point you may need to go to court for a permanent resolution of the case. Before you make such a move, make sure that you have addressed every issue from every angle that you can think of. Consult with your attorney. Your attorney can help you decide whether or not this is the right time to move on, and if so, how best to proceed. While you can return to mediation after filing a motion in court, it may become difficult; moving to litigation has an unfortunate tendency to erode the spirit of collaboration built up in mediation.
