Post Mediation Agreements
Congratulations on settling your matter in Mediation. But wait, you are not done. In order to make the terms of your settlement legally enforceable in the North Carolina courts, you need a Separation Agreement or Consent Order prepared by a licensed North Carolina attorney. The Mediator may not prepare a binding agreement reflecting those terms.
If we have all of the relevant terms of your settlement, we can provide you with an enforceable Separation Agreement or Consent Order for $600, usually within 48 hours. We can also prepare Deeds required by the terms of your settlement.
Benefits of a Legally Enforceable Mediated Settlement Agreement
- Peace of Mind. Settling your disputes is a relief. Add to that relief the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a legally enforceable Agreement and all the documents necessary to complete the process.
- Promotes Better Relationships. Having a clear, well-crafted Separation Agreement or Consent Order helps you avoid future disputes by giving each party clear and specific terms and requirements arising from the settlement.
- Predictable and Reliable. With a well-crafted Separation Agreement or Consent, both parties are less likely to breach the Agreement. You are better able to predict and rely upon the other party doing what they agreed to do.
