Interesting Turn of events

Dear harleydad:

Greetings. You can agree to this in a consent order or in a separation agreement, and it will fly. You should know that even if you agree not to file for child support, you can still file at any time in the future.

You do not need mediation to come to an agreement or make an agreement work if you already have one. Best of luck.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

Do not walk, RUN to get this agreement signed before she changes her mind, if this is what you want. Have been through the “let’s talk” business with my ex, and as fast as the speed of light, she’s changed her mind. Wish you the best.

If you refer to my last post, I was “angry, frustrated and impatient”.

Two days ago, out of the blue, the spouse calls me and says she is fed up with her attorney’s stall tactics and lack of attention to her case. She is considering firing him. She wants to settle.

Yesterday she and I met and I outlined a separation agreement (the same agreement I presented to her through my attorney a year ago) stating this:

She gets half the equity in the house, in a cash one time payment. Roughly $12,000. I keep the house I and the children occupy.

She keeps her vehicle which I will continue to pay for, insure, but not maintain until the loan is paid. I sign the title over to her when its paid for next November.

She keeps all her personal possesions in the house, including those common things we previously agreed on.

I will have custody of both teenage children, one 16 one 17. Visitation at their discretion given their ages.

I will insure both children life and medical.

She pays NO child support. She is not obligated financially to the children in any manner unless she wants to be.

I pay NO alimony.

She keeps her seperate checking and savings.

I keep my seperate checking and savings.

She keeps her 401k.

I keep mine.

She keeps her debts.

I keep mine.

I will provide her $750 a year for 2 years from a flexible medical spending account as long as my employer offers that benefit.

Question 1. Will this fly in court.

Question 2. If not, would mediation help this agreement be approved by the court.

Thanks as always for your help.
