Is a text stating what you agree to in a divorce negotiation binding?

Mishawaka, IN |

My spouse & i went negotiating back and forth using text messages. Is that enforceable as a final agreement by a court? Nothing is signed.

  1. That is very unlikely to be considered binding in my experience. A signed (written) agreement that is filed with the court is usually necessary for it to be fully enforceable.
