I am not sure about provision. But a week ago, a husband in a divorce ongoing case sought advice on phone. I suggested him to make an application to Judge that now at this stage he wishes to solve dispute amicably through mediation.
He did make application. The Judge halted on going evidence and adjourned the case. The parties are now in process of settling their dispute amicably.
I think a clarification is necessary by superior courts to make mediation possible at any stage in a family dispute case.
