Greetings. Please, please don’t tell me that you drew up your own agreement. Argh…this just pains me immensely. No, I doubt that your agreement would hold up, except to show that you can pay the amount you agreed to and to show that she needs the amounts you agreed to pay. You may have done more damage to your long term negotiating and court position then you intended.
I cannot imagine why if you both live in Virginia she would file in NC. I think that would cost you some funds, but you could quickly get the matter moved to NC. Best of luck.
