Greetings. I would have to see your agreement to give you a final opinion. Generally in NC, when you sign a separation agreement, you cannot reopen the issues of alimony or equitable distribution again. You can always file a claim for child support and child custody, even if the issues are resolved in the separation agreement.
I would tell you not to re-open the agreement and to stick by your guns. Also, if I were you, I would invite him out to dinner and talk to him about the things he is unhappy about, without making any promises or agreeing to anything he proposes. Just listening to him may be enough. Now, if you are uncomfortable doing that, then I would tell you to ignore his “whining” and keep moving towards divorce. Best of luck.
