Possibly not, but be sure to get it checked out with local counsel. If in doubt it is best to assume it is valid rather than be sorry later.

I would suggest that you make an appointment with an experienced local family attorney to have all of your questions answered. Write the questions out in advance so you do not forget any of them. It should not be expensive to have this sort of legal consultation, but ask about the fee in advance to be sure.

I realize that this answer is somewhat vague but I believe that yours is the sort of question that can best be answered by a local expert. Many legal questions are best answered by reference to the local rules and individual judges involved.
