Is there a [hard] time limit to get mediation done?
I would think that if parties can't agree on a date in the near future it can't just go on & on.

Mediation pursuant to a contract calling for mediation to settle disputes? It should be spelled out in the contract. If not, there would be limits imposed by state law, which will vary.

The Texas contracts call for mediation. There are no dates specified as it also says to try informal discussions. If it keeps going on and on with no dates getting set, one of the parties may take it to court for the judge to put a deadline on the mediation. It's an extra cost and extra filing fee, but it gets you to Mediation for a resolution. If mediation has no resolution, at least you still have your court case you already filed so moving forward is quicker.

The Texas contract also states that each party will share the expenses equally.

Re-read the contract, no time limit mentioned.
State is California.
Mediation costs are split, but if it goes further (arbitration/court) then costs are not split, but the 'winning' party can attempt to recoup "reasonable" legal fees from the other party.
At least that's the way I read the contract.
