I have a categorical dependent variable (Intend to vote for or Do not intend to vote for) and am trying to see the fit of the moderation and mediation full model.

I am unable to get the fit indices or goodness of fit results for the model. I saw online "there are no descriptive model fit statistics produced by Mplus when it analyzes categorical outcomes." also found "When means, variances, and covariances are not sufficient statistics for model estimation, chi-square and related fit statistics are not defined and are not available."

However is there another way I am able to get this information?

First, check if your model has a restriction that can be tested - such as a left-out path from one variable to another. If that is the case, run a less restrictive ("neighboring") model and see of the extra parameter(s) are significant.
