Hi Terry,My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.If that document says that you will not get child support, and you sign it, you will not get child support. You cannot go back later and request it. You cannot seek more if his income increases. You cannot appeal. And you cannot argue that he did not provide sufficient financial information, because signing a statement that you are OK with the disclosure overrides every single statement you have ever made stating that you were NOT satisfied with the information they gave you. "Waive any further disclosure" should be referring to this proceeding only and not any future requests to modify the alimony after ten years, but you have the option of asking to clarify or change that section so that it is very clear whether you'll be able to request financial information later if you need to.Since you do not feel comfortable signing the agreement, talk to you lawyer. Ask him to explain why he feels that the agreement benefits you. Neither an opposing party nor an attorney can force a party to sign something against his will. It's possible that you're waiving child support because of the amount of alimony, but that's something that you should know and understand, since you'll be held to the agreement that you make. If they will not clarify, change, or help you to understand why that clause should be in the agreement, you have the option of refusing to sign. But your attorney likely has a reason for believing that the agreement benefits you, and would be in the best position to give advice, as someone with the full picture.If you have any questions or concerns about what I've written, please reply so that I may address them. It's important to me that you are 100% satisfied with the service I provide. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so that I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
The original agreement, signed in April, states that the wife shall receive said amount of alimony and no child support due to his income which was falsified. My attorney told me I can ask for child support later down the road. Are you telling me I can no longer ask for child support?
