Sample Settlement Agreement Florida

A settlement agreement reached during mediation must be signed by all parties who come to mediation in order to be enforceable. Town of Delray Beach v. Keiser, 699 d. 2d 855 (Fla. 4th DCA 1997). Normally, a party is not physically present, normally appears by phone and must sign and send by fax or e-mail. Make sure that the agreement contains a provision for authorizing fax or email signatures and signings in return. Don`t stop mediation until everyone signs. If someone leaves without a signature for any reason, do not cancel the trial or hearing until all signatures have been affixed. Declassification of All Claims: Each Party, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, releases the other Party from all claims, debts, liabilities, obligations, acts and causes of recourse, whether known or unknown.
