Will our mediated divorce agreement be enforceable?

Divorce agreements that are made through the mediation process are just as enforceable as agreements that are the product of litigation, or judgments entered by a judge after trial.

Throughout the mediation process, the mediator’s goal is to craft a well-written divorce agreement that is free of ambiguity or uncertainty. In this regard, a mediated Separation Agreement is no different from an agreement prepared by attorneys through litigation. The only difference between a mediated Separation Agreement, and one prepared by attorneys during litigation, is the methodology employed in reaching resolution. In either instance, the agreement is incorporated in the Judgment of a Divorce and becomes enforceable as a court order thereafter.
