Ex and I have worked out child support and custody between ourselves for years now. Recently, ex has said he has gone to a lawyer and wants to get a child support agreement written up by this lawyer and signed by the both of us. He is offering me a couple hundred more than he is currently giving me. I am feeling a bit suspicious about his motivations (why now? and why offer me more $?). I am wondering if there is anything that any of you ladies can give me a heads up about? Are there things that I need to look out for? I have no experience with doing things legally, and I just don't want sign something that will hurt me down the line. He does have a girlfriend, and the 1st thing that popped into my head is maybe they are planning to get married. I don't know if that would change anything for me (I live in PA). Another thing is he seems to want to get it done soon. I asked for a month to think it over, and he said that a month is too long (why the rush to give me more $?). I would love to hear what some of you experienced with the legal system have to say.
FYI: We were never married.
