If when the mediation ends, you have reached full agreement on all issues, the Mediator will usually help you both draft something setting out what you have agreed.
Anything prepared will usually be evidence of what you agreed however it will not be binding or enforceable.
You will need to formally document your agreement for it to be legally binding.
For parenting matters you will need to document your agreement into Consent Orders.
For property matters you will need to document your agreement into either Consent Orders or a Financial Agreement.
