No. An agreement is binding provided that it was entered into voluntarily,
with a full exchange of financial information and with independent legal
advice. Having said that, agreements often contain clauses dealing with
matters that must be put before the Court in order to finalize a divorce,
such as matters dealing with the support and care of children. In those
situations, those particular clauses are typically reproduced in the divorce
documents, rather than attaching the full agreement. Many people prefer
not to file their agreement with the Court, so that they are able to keep the
details of their settlement private.
