Court Fine Payment
After you have submitted a mediation request at the Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM), you and the other party will undergo mediation at TADM. If mediation is successful, both of you will write and sign on a settlement agreement in the presence of an approved mediator. The settlement agreement is a legally binding contract between you and the other party. It is an agreement to amicably resolve existing or potential disputes between both of you, and contains terms which both of you must comply with.
A settlement agreement that is not registered with the District Court is still a legally binding contract. However, if either party breaches the terms of the settlement agreement, the settlement agreement must first be sued upon and a court order obtained before enforcement action can be taken against the defaulting party.
Either party may register a settlement agreement recorded at TADM with the District Court. Registering the settlement agreement will make it enforceable as an Order of the District Court. This means that if one party does not fulfil his/her obligations under the registered settlement agreement, enforcement action may be taken against that defaulting party.
Any party to a settlement agreement may apply to register it. The application must be made within 4 weeks after the date on which the settlement agreement was signed by all parties to the settlement agreement.
Pay the registration fee of $10. Applications will only be processed after the requisite payments are made. Payment may be made via:
