Is an inc sep agree cov cs same as order?


#1

from what I have been told in a similar situation that if the separation agreement is incorporated into a divorce it is a court order because the divorce order has been signed by a judge. if she is not requesting a increase in child support you should have to worry with that. I would think as long as you have been paying what is in the separation agreement you should have no problem about arears.

Yes, an incorporated Separation Agreement is a court order. You would only be liable for arrearages if you were paying less than the order said. They cannot go back and determine you should have been paying a different amount and then make you pay the difference.

Is an incorporated separation agreement covering child support a court order?

If cse get’s involved regarding child support, would I have to pay arrearges if it is found out I owned more than I was/am paying?

I calculated, 3 years ago, that I was paying her 200$ over the guidelines based on her income of 0$ and mine then. She does work, barely. Since then the guideline shave been upped %-age wise now it looks based on my “guess” that I underpay by ~100.00-150.00 a month. How does our incorporated agreement affect all of this?

She has filed for medicaid for herself, i cover the kids on my insurance which is indicated in the same agreement (incorporated sep agreement). This has started a procedure where cse gets involved so as to act as an intervening party regarding just the health insurance. They have stated she does not want to puruse a modication of child support, maybe because she’d be getting less? I don’t know.

I need to reply to there request of becoming an intervening party soon and need osme answers…

thanks…
