The settlement conference may be terminated without cause by any party and at any time. The parties understand that this alternative dispute resolution process does not fulfill the mandatory child custody and visitation mediation requirements of Family Code sections 3170 and 3171. The parties understand that the person conducting the Voluntary Settlement Conference is not a courtconnected mediator. The settlement facilitator has no personal or financial interest in the outcome of the Voluntary Settlement Conference. The settlement facilitator does not act as an advocate, representative, fiduciary, lawyer, or therapist for any party, and does not have any authority to impose a decision on the parties. Statements made during the Voluntary Settlement Conference are considered confidential and may not be used in court in the event an agreement is not reached. No record shall be made except to memorialize a settlement. Offers to settle or compromise, statements, admissions, and all related negotiations during the Voluntary Settlement Conference are to be considered confidential and privileged and are inadmissible to prove the validity or invalidity of any party's claim pursuant to Evidence Code section 1152. Confidentiality, however, will not extend to crimes or threats of imminent physical harm or acts of actual violence occurring during the settlement conference. In situations where there is a reasonable suspicion that child abuse or elder abuse and/or neglect has occurred, the settlement facilitator is required to report such suspicion. The parties agree that the provisions of Evidence Code section 703.5 shall apply to the settlement conference.
