Family Mediation

Is the mediated settlement agreement legally binding?

Once signed by both parties, the mediated settlement agreement becomes legally binding. If both parties agree, you can:

  1. Submit the divorce application together with the mediated settlement agreement to the Family Court on your own, and apply to the court for an order in accordance with the terms of the agreement; or
  2. Submit the mediated settlement agreement to the lawyer to apply for a court order in divorce on your behalf.
