My husband and ex-wife have a seperation agreement that addresses custody, support and care of the children. Even though they are divorced, is there seperation agreement still enforceable? If so, I was informed by a mediator at the courthouse, that if a court order was established regarding custody, it would override any previous agreements addressing custody, including the one in their seperation agreement.
Now I am wondering does that also apply to child support? In there speration agreement, my husband (without any legal advice or really thinking it through) had agreed to a certain amount of support, to provide health insurance, to cover 50% of medical expenses (including co-pays) and a sum of money at the begginning of the school year for school clothes and supplies.
Since signing this seperation agreement, the ex-wife decided to take us to Child Support and try to get more. Child Support established an court order for us to pay a certain amount plus provide health insurance. Are we still obligated to pay the 50% of medical expenses and extra sum of money at the begginning of the school year becuase it is in the seperation agreement? I would think that the order established by the court would override any pre-existing agreement regarding all financial support of the children.
