I assume you have an attorney. You need to talk to your attorney about these details.

You are asking very technical details that I'm not comfortable addressing without knowing a lot more.

I assume that you are not going to mediation if you don't have it scheduled since trial is July 22nd!

I would attempt to schedule a mediation if all you are fighting over is property. Most cases on property can settle at mediation. I cannot tell where you live in TX since no zip code is included.

I mediate in Harris and contiguous counties to Harris County. My rate is $250 per side for 4 hours. If we go longer then it's $62.50 per side for each hour past the initial 4 hours.

I hope my answer has been somewhat helpful to you.
