  2. Mediation Sessions: Facilitate confidential and neutral mediation sessions, providing a platform for open dialogue and negotiation.
  3. Settlement Agreement Drafting: Assist in drafting a detailed settlement agreement that reflects the decisions reached during mediation.

Divorce Settlement Agreement      

A divorce settlement agreement is a formal document that outlines the terms and conditions under which a divorcing couple agrees to resolve their marital issues and dissolve their marriage. This agreement is usually presented during divorce negotiations between the parties. The purpose of the settlement agreement is to reach a mutually agreeable resolution on key issues without the need for court intervention.

The contents of a divorce settlement agreement can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the couple, but it typically addresses the following key areas:

  1. Division of Assets and Debts:
    • Specifies how marital assets (property, finances, investments, etc.) and debts will be divided between the spouses. This may include details on the division of real estate, bank accounts, retirement accounts, and other shared assets.
  1. Alimony or Spousal Support:
    • Outlines any agreed-upon financial support that one spouse will provide to the other after the divorce. This may include the amount, duration, and terms of spousal support.
  1. Child Custody and Visitation:
    • Addresses issues related to the custody of children, including a proposed parenting plan, visitation schedules, and decision-making responsibilities. It aims to prioritize the best interests of the children.
  1. Child Support:
    • Specifies the amount and terms of child support payments, ensuring that the financial needs of the children are met after the divorce.
  1. Health Insurance and Other Benefits:
    • Addresses whether one spouse will continue to provide health insurance or other benefits to the other, especially if these benefits were previously shared during the marriage.
  1. Tax Implications:
    • Considers any potential tax implications associated with the divorce settlement, such as the division of tax refunds, claiming dependents, and other relevant tax matters.
  1. Dispute Resolution Mechanisms:
    • Outlines the procedures for resolving future disputes that may arise between the parties, encouraging alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation.
  1. Miscellaneous Provisions:
    • Covers any other specific agreements or arrangements that the parties wish to include in the settlement, addressing unique aspects of their situation.


It’s important to note that the divorce settlement agreement is a negotiation tool, and both parties may need to engage in discussions and potential revisions before reaching a final agreement. Once both spouses reach a consensus, the agreed-upon terms can be formalized in a legally binding document known as a divorce settlement agreement. This agreement is then submitted to the court for approval and incorporation into the final divorce decree.


Will the Settlement Agreement be Enforceable?

A mediation settlement agreement is enforceable once approved and signed by the judge. A judge reviews the settlement agreement and signs a court order finalizing the divorce.
