What is a Memorandum of Understanding?

Outlining your agreements

A Memorandum of Understanding is a document that your family mediator will issue at the conclusion of your mediation. It is a summary of everything that you and your ex-partner agrees during mediation. It is an important document, as it can also be used by lawyers to draft financial or consent orders.

Although it not a legally binding document, it contains everything needed for a last agreement, especially because both parties have agreed to it content and agree to abide by the outcomes from the mediation.

The document can summarise many forms of mediation including child living or contact arrangements; summary of financial agreements; agreements to resolve family disputes or even who gets to care for your pets.
