First, the parties may meet voluntarily to discuss their differences. If they reach an agreement, they will be able to draft and conclude the agreement in court. Parties to a TEDRA petition can easily obtain a voluntary and out-of-court solution to trust and estate issues by entering into an agreement signed by all parties. A TEDRA agreement is a legally binding contract governing disputes between interested parties. The agreement may remain confidential, both to the public and to the beneficiaries.

However, the filing of the TEDRA Agreement makes the Agreement available to the public, which the parties may not want. . . .
