Marital transaction agreements are valid and enforceable contracts. As soon as a court issues a divorce judgment involving a marriage conciliation agreement, the case is generally final and the divorce cannot be challenged. However, there are limited circumstances in which you or your spouse can challenge the validity of a divorce judgment that includes a marriage settlement agreement. As a general rule, the court will not declare a marital transaction agreement invalid if such an agreement has been negotiated and both parties are represented by counsel. Although it is difficult to prove that the reasons why you can challenge the marital transaction contract are: If a spouse is on social assistance, the Crown may be required to review and sign the marital transaction contract before it is filed in court. If the court decides that the agreement is fair to all parties involved, the agreement can be signed as a final divorce decision in a court order. While you can make generous arrangements for children under a marriage contract and try to decide on issues of care and visitation, you cannot limit or omit your obligation to assist your minor children. Custody, home visit and child support issues are still being considered by the courts and New York law requires the court to determine what is in the best interests of the child. Future participation in mediation in the event of litigation or the involvement of a parental coordinator for custody and education matters are standard clauses and an agreement that, in the event of a breach, the offending party will pay the legal fees of the uninjured party in the event of an infringement and a resulting application for enforcement before the Court of Justice. Marital transaction agreements can be concluded at any time prior to the final judgment. They are usually filed with the final judgment.
