Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

Unless there is something in the settlement that gives the person a "right of rescission" so they can withdraw their acceptance, the settlement is legally binding the instant that they sign it and they can't back out and change their mind.

.

So a person shouldn't sign anything agreeing to settle unless they are sure that the terms reflect what they agree to.
