a writen, stipulated agreement between the parties would be an agreement that two parties come up with and then enter it as a court order.

When my dh and the bm went to mediation they came up with an agreement but then bm failed to follow the agreement so dh asked the court to waive the agreement and moved for trial. BM and her attorney did not want to waive the agreement but DH attorney put on a strong case and showed BM does not follow the agreement and we ended up in trial.

The mediation agreement was a stipulated agreement.


Hope this helps.

so how do I get a stipulated agreement?

I need her and I to sign it then send it to the court?
what if she doesn't want to agree to sign an agreement?

yes, you'd have to take the signed agreement to court to have it put in as a court order.

if she won't sign anything, you'll have to file a motion to get the court order....

or.....

trust her to keep her word without an agreement, set a precedent, when she starts to go against the oral agreement, take her to court and hope the judge sees it your way.
