What happens if we reach an agreement in Mediation?

If you reach a full or partial agreement during mediation, Family Services of the Conciliation Court (FSCC) will prepare a Court Decree outlining your agreements. The agreement will be sent to you electronically so you can review the document, determine if the agreement is accurate, and sign the document if you agree to its terms.

If you are represented by an attorney, the document will be sent to your attorney for their review and signature. After all parties sign the document, the Decree will be forwarded to the Judge for final approval and to become a court order. If an objection is filed by one of the parties, the mediator will contact the parties and attempt to resolve the areas in dispute.
