Mediation agreement is usually memorialized in writing. Even if the mediation takes more than one day, a mediator may want to draft a memorandum of agreements to be carried over for the next day. In general, if a party agrees orally in mediation, but they do not sign an agreement indicating they agreed, then this may be an instance to where agreement did not actually occur. On the other hand, if both parties agree after the mediation on some matter, that can always be amended (added) to the mediation agreement that should already exist. If no agreement in writing at all exists, you are at the mercy of the court, or any new agreement you get in writing.
