Just attended a mandatory orientation session for custody mediation at Court. We were shown two videos stressing the importance of being good parents, working our goals through mediation, etc.
Bias was alive in well...the videos had role playing scenes, and showed a Dad moving out, a Dad moving out to an apartment, Mom staying in the house, child support being written by Dad, kids dealing with Dad's anger and Mom being scared about the future.
The two bailiffs in the court were joking around playing Angry Birds on their phones. What a messed up system.
Mediation date is in a couple of weeks. I have entered the Matrix.
