Can someone change their mind after signing an intent to settle at mitigation?

Dear Customer,

It is critical to understand the specific terms of the agreement that was signed at mediation.

An "intent to settle" is not enforceable (these agreements are simply reflections that the parties are likely to enter into a settlement in the near future).

A "settlement" that is signed between the parties is enforceable, and the parties are not permitted to withdraw from it unilaterally.
