Are Divorce Mediation Agreements Binding?

Are divorce mediation agreements binding in California? In a divorce mediation in California, when a divorce mediation is properly drafted it can be binding if the agreement provides for it to bind the parties. This agreement may be used outside of the mediation.

The problem is that under California law, everything that goes on with extremely limited exceptions, is secret and may not be revealed or used outside of the mediation unless there is an agreement to do so.
