Your question is general without identifying the parties involved or issues of
mediation. If the parties cannot agree to a mediated settlement, the court will
decide based on evidence presented. If family beneficiaries are involved, they
will often agree to a mediated settlement to avoid the litigation. An attorney can
advise you regarding specifics.
Mediation is a very positive approach to resolve issues. If it does not work, you can always litigate thereafter. If you do resolve, make sure it is completely in writing so everyone knows what they can expect.
