Is a Mediated Agreement Binding?

Author: Brian James |

The agreements reached in mediation are not binding until they are taken to court as part of the divorce agreement or an agreed order entered by the parties if mediation is on post-decree issues. Specific circumstances surrounding the case will dictate how this should best be handled. An attorney can best explain how this works. The court generally reviews the agreement to assure that it conforms to the standards for your state, such as the child support or maintenance guidelines and financial matters.
