A: A well drafted agreement should include the date that payments begin, independent of when the final judgment is signed. If the two of you cannot agree on the start date then you must go back to court for clarification.

A: Your agreement should state the date that child support begins. It is doesn't, file a Motion with the Court to establish the date.
