Family Mediation

Does the agreement reached in mediation have legally binding effect?

Once the agreement is signed, it is legally binding. If the parties agree, they can: submit the signed agreement together with the divorce application papers to the family court; and apply to the court to make court orders according to the signed agreement without employing lawyers; or give the signed agreement to lawyers who will apply for the court orders for you in the divorce process.
