We had a rule 11agreement. It was not the final settlement but did address custody in an emergency situation. To my knowledge they are short and don't typically address every facet of a final settlement as with a mediated settlement agreement.
I did a rule 11. Then did an MSA.
Instead of working it out yourselves as you suggest, you can meet with your attorney present if you know she is ready to get it over with. Set up in 2 separate rooms. If your ex has an attorney which it doesn't sound like she does, her attorney must be present and they must sign the MSA as well. If she does not, an MSA is valid and binding if written in the correct manner. (there are some bold faced disclaimers which are required on the front page) Your attorney hashes it out. Prints it and it is signed. Once that signature is on paper, the MSA is binding and it is over. This is what I did and what I would recommend to you.
