Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

As long as both parents voluntarily sign it, yes. That is a contract, which makes it both binding and enforceable. One way to avoid an issue is to have the signatures witnessed by a notary, so no one can come back later and claim they didn't sign it.

Please rate my service positively, as this is the only way that I get paid for the time spent answering your questions. Mobile users may have to scroll to the right. Thank you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
