Texas Family Code Mediated Settlement Agreement

(2) is signed by each Party;  and (c) on the basis of the written agreement of the parties or a request for self-application, the court may refer to mediation an appeal concerning the parent-child relationship. (1) provides, in a clearly visible statement, which is roughly or wholesale or underlined, that the contract may not be revoked; (f) A party may, at any time prior to the final mediation order, file a written appeal against the referral to mediation of an appeal relating to the parent-child relationship, on the basis of domestic violence committed by another party against the opposite party or a child who is the subject of the complaint.  Once the opposition has been filed, the appeal cannot be referred to mediation unless a hearing is held at the request of a party and the court finds that an overweight evidence does not support the objection.  When the appeal is referred to mediation, the Tribunal shall order that appropriate measures be taken to ensure the physical and psychological safety of the party who filed the opposition. . . .
