Article 10 - Information on competent courts or authorities

If you wish to enforce in Northern Ireland the content of a mediation agreement, you should make an application to do so according to the procedures as set out:

    • If you have not initiated proceedings in a court yet, you should lodge an application to make the mediation settlement agreement enforceable at either the High Court or any one of the other courts (see the link provided).

    • However, if you have already existing proceedings in a court in Northern Ireland, you should lodge an application to make the mediation settlement agreement enforceable at the court where your case is already listed for a hearing.
