No agreement is enforceable until and unless it has been approved by the Court. If it is not enforceable, it is of limited (if any) value. If you have an agreement, so it the right way and have it approved by the Court.

These are complex issues, and it is important that they be handled correctly. Therefore, it is important that you consult an experienced family law attorney to find out what options are available to you based on the facts of your particular case.
