We've been married for 16 years, reside in FL, and have 2 kids (15 and 11). My husband had an affair and we are currently trying to work through it. However, part of the deal for me to give him another chance is for him to sign an agreement giving me permanent alimony and providing me with full custody as well as child support for the kids. He has agreed. I had a consultation with an attorney and she suggested filing a marital settlement agreement instead of a post-nuptial. This way, if he has another affair in the future, the agreement is already filed with the court. How do I file this agreement without having to dissolve the marriage? What form should I file based on the FL family law form site (http://www.flcourts.org/gen_public/family/forms_rules/index.shtml#petsup)?
