Under the Family Code, the court has the power to order, on its own motion, that the parties enter into mediation.
A mediated settlement is binding on the parties if:
(1) it provides in a prominently displayed stmt that it is in boldfaced type, in capital letters, or underlined that the agreement is not subject to revocation;
(2) it is signed by both parties; and
(3) it is signed by the parties' attorneys, if any, who were present at the time the parties signed the agreement.
If mediated settlement agreement meets these reqs, either party is entitled to judgment on the agrmt.
