Will a notarized custody agreement hold in court?
Is a Notarized Child Custody Agreement Enforceable in Court? A notarized child custody agreement is not enforceable by a court. A signed and notarized child custody agreement is enforceable as a contract between the parents, but the court will not enforce the agreement until it is incorporated into a court order.
Can you change a custody agreement without going to court?
If you want to make changes to the order and you both agree on those changes, then you should make a consent order. If you don’t follow the court order, and instead come up with a new agreement, you can’t enforce that agreement in court.
Can a written agreement hold up in court?
For a written agreement to be legally binding, it must contain an acceptance of the terms in the document. The most common way to accept is through a signature. If your written agreement is not signed, it might still be enforceable if the parties have clearly accepted the terms through conduct or otherwise.
