A: If you agree to change the stip, it would be an agreement, but it does not change the court order. For it to be totally binding you need to get the stip "so-ordered" by a Judge. Contact a local attorney.

A: Most stips allow for a modification. You should check your stip to see if it does and what the procedure is to modify the stip. If you don't follow the procedure as required, the modification isn't binding.
