Even if you have eached an agreement it is usually best to at least meet with an attorney and find out if there are any pitfalls associated with drafting a Separation Agreement or a consent order. The cost will differ based on the attorney you hire and how complicated your agreement is.

We both realize that and both of us have our own attorney. We just don’t want to spend a lot of money that could better go for the children vs. attorney fees. We already are divorced. This is just in regard to a modification of our old SA of visitation and Child Support (now includes daycare).

What should we do next to get it turned into a court order? Do we go to mediation and tell them we have a plan? Please advise,thanks.

If you have previously been to a court ordered mediation session, you should be able to contact the mediation office and request that they schedule a time for you and your spouse to return to mediation.

My ex and I have a new agreeement that we have drawn up. We both want it turned into a court order so it’s enforceable. What do we need to do to do for that to happen? We are looking at the lowest cost here. I just am wondering the best way to handle this.

Should we have a lawyer redo what we have written to make it more legal sounding? or does it matter?
