Agreement to support
Family Court Act (FCT) CHAPTER 686, ARTICLE 4, PART 2
§ 425. Agreement to support. If an agreement for the support of the
petitioner is brought about, it must be reduced to writing and submitted
to the family court or a support magistrate appointed pursuant to
section four hundred thirty-nine of this act for approval. If the court
or support magistrate approves it, the court without further hearing may
thereupon enter an order for the support of the petitioner by the
respondent in accordance with the agreement, which shall be binding upon
the respondent and shall in all respects be a valid order as though made
after process had been issued out of the court. The court record shall
show that such order was made upon agreement.
