Family Mediation

Can the parties or the family mediator make the contents of the family mediation meeting public or present it to the court?

When both parties begin to receive family mediation services, the family mediator and both parties must sign a consent form promising to keep the discussions during the mediation process confidential, with the exception of the final settlement agreement. According to the confidentiality privilege of mediation, the contents discussed during the mediation process may not be used as evidence in court, so the legal rights of both parties are properly protected.
