I have a settlement conference, and if I agree to the terms. I don’t want to sign until later. I would like a week to review the documents to make sure the agreement doesn’t have anything in it I didn’t agree to. I would like a week to think about the agreement, and have others review. Can I do that?

Also, if you have a settlement conference who is there? Just me, wife, her attorney and my attorney? I was never told about a mediator, so I take it one will not be there.

What is you recommendation to a settlement conference to look out for?

A settlement conference is usually attended by each of the parties and their attorneys. You may take a week to review the terms of any settlement that is reached.
