I have invited my ex to mediation. I sent him a text and he refused saying he can't afford it.

Can i still proceed?

He has said he is willing to sit down together and discuss this privately with me but I am not comfortable doing that at all. I really would like to see a mediator.

Is him refusing due to lack of funds and acceptable redusal given that he has suggested doing it ourselves? Which I do not want as mentally I would not be able to cope with it

Don't do anything you aren't comfortable with especially without legal advice. Explain to him that if he refuses to cooperate, it will most likely cost him far more than mediation.

You could also get him to check if he is eligible for legal aid. The mediators can do this for him.

If he refuses to attend mediation, you can get the form to take the matter to court, but this should be a last resort as it can be costly if solicitors are involved.
