However, a support agreement must be reasonably clear to be applicable. In one case where a father agreed to bear his children`s post-high school costs, “limited to the costs reasonably incurred to obtain a bachelor`s degree or to obtain a particular appelncie course,” the North Carolina courts found that the absence of a certain amount or percentage of the total cost made the agreement unfeasible. The party that wants to enforce the agreement can sue the party in violation of the agreement. If the agreement contained a language containing assistance and maintenance and the party who has been discharged from such payments contravenes the agreement, the party making the application may revoke the separation agreement and apply for assistance or support. In the event of a breach of contract, the other party is authorized to take steps to induce the party to fulfil its obligations under the treaty. This is called the implementation of the agreement. The implementation of a separation agreement depends in large part on the particular clause of the agreement that has been breached. Some terms, such as those dealing with child care, are fairly easy to apply. Other concepts, such as those dealing with the assignment of parenting, can be much more difficult to manage. It is not necessary to have a lawyer involved in the trial or the development of a separation agreement, but it is a very good idea. And it`s a very good idea if your spouse has involved a lawyer.
Violation of the separation agreement by a party does not necessarily exempt the non-binding portion of the benefit. The provisions of the agreement, such as .B integration of conditions and the granting of a reciprocal review, may determine whether the non-party party is required to meet the conditions at a later date. A separation agreement may also mean that some parties are merged into the divorce judgment, but other parties survive the divorce decision. However, it is common practice that the entire separation agreement is not merged into the divorce judgment, but has survived the divorce decision and can therefore be applied separately. As a general rule, a party cannot claim damages for intellectual torment caused by an offence. However, the Supreme Court of North Carolina held that there can be recovery if an applicant can prove that: (1) the contract was not seized of trade or commerce; (2) the contract was not primarily a financial benefit; or (3) the treaty referred to issues of dignity and emotion, so that there is a high probability of psychological disorders when it comes to a break-up. Although most agreements are not able to complete the second and third phases, there may be damage if there has been a non-harassment clause in the agreement that constituted an offence and caused emotional harm. A non-harassment clause is contained in agreements to prevent the parties from interfering in the other`s lives. Violations of such clauses include: creating or sending repeated and unwanted calls, TEXT, emails or letters; trying to get the other party to stop unfairly; filing and withdrawing several appeals against the other party; complaining about the other party to the other party`s employer or to co-workers Interception of the other party`s mail; or to run the other party for a long time.
