Sample Mediation Agreement Divorce

This is an agreement between _____im following „Ombudsman“ in order to enter into mediation in order to resolve the following problems: – The parties also understand that the Ombudsman may suspend or terminate mediation if he believes that the mediation will result in an unjustified or inappropriate outcome; If the mediator feels that a dead end has been reached; or if the mediator finds that he cannot exercise his role as an intermediary effectively for long. The parties understand that after the mediator`s agreement, it is necessary to determine the extent of mediation, and this will be done very early in the mediation process. All parties here declare their intention to conclude their mediation through an agreement. However, it is likely that each party may, at any time, withdraw or suspend the mediation process for any reason. Between the parties and the Ombudsman, mediation is considered strictly confidential. Mediation talks, draft resolutions and unsigned negotiated agreements are not permitted in any jurisdiction or other contentious proceedings. Only a mediation agreement signed by the parties is thus allowed. The only other exceptions to this confidentiality are when all parties waive confidentiality in writing or in an action brought by a party against the Mediator. The parties agree not to call the mediator as a witness for mediation or to provide documents from mediation as part of a legal proceeding between the parties.

Mediation is seen by the parties and the mediator as a settlement negotiation. All parties also understand and agree that the Ombudsman may hold private caucus meetings and talks with each party, all of which are confidential meetings and discussions between the Ombudsman and the disputed party. A payment of the Ombudsman`s expenses and expenses is paid to the Ombudsman at the same time as the signing of this agreement. The unearned amount of these deductions is refunded to the parties. The parties are jointly liable for the costs and costs of the mediator. The liability for intermediation and intermediation costs is only between the parties: Each party undertakes to disclose all relevant information and writings, as requested by the Ombudsman, and all information requested by another party, when the Ombudsman finds that the disclosure is relevant to mediation interviews. In cases of family mediation, each party undertakes to disclose in full and precisely all income, assets and debts. The parties agree that the mediator can discuss the parties` mediation process with any lawyer whom each party can retain as an individual advisor. These discussions will not involve negotiations unless the parties tell the Ombudsman that their lawyers have bargaining power. The Ombudsman provides copies of correspondence, draft contracts and written documents to an independent lawyer at the request of a party.
