Put Your Agreement In Writing

Your best evidence of a contract or agreement is the paper containing its terms. This must be signed by both parties who agree to be bound by it. Consider it your best defense should anything go wrong in the implementation of the agreement.
The same precaution applies to family law cases, where a parent, who is a party to a support or visitation arrangement, is best protected by an agreement in writing. Having a formal agreement takes the place of constant verbal contact between parties, whose communication with one another is most probably strained. Where the case is pending in family court, it is best to have the court approve and note the agreement. Once approved, either party should be careful in the observance of its terms because any failure in compliance may be subject to enforcement by court order.
