Florida Private Settlement Agreement

(2) The probate court did not have the power to set aside the terms of the settlement agreement. Although some lawyers and clients believe that even the simple mediation proposal shows a weakness in their legal position, I have always thought that the parties are more open to the interested parties after hearing the benefits of mediation to resolve estate disputes. Even if a court order requires the parties to the trial to mediate, any restraint due to fear of perceived weakness can be eliminated. If the sanctity of a final signed agreement is tarnished by ignorance, the basis of the mediation process can be fatally weakened. Preserving dignity (and fortune) My experience has confirmed my faith in the mediation process. .
