If all parties agree to a resolution of any such matter, then the agreement shall be evidenced by a written agreement signed by all parties.

If a party who virtually represents another under RCW 11.96A.120 signs the agreement, then the party's signature constitutes the signature of all persons whom the party virtually represents, and all the virtually represented persons shall be bound by the agreement.
