Me and my spouse were married outside the U.S. a few years ago. We have small children. My spouse is a citizen of another country. The country of spouse's citizenship is the country of our marriage. Also, my spouse recently became a permanent resident of the U.S.. In a few weeks we planning to visit a country of my spouse citizenship (that is the country of our marriage). Our relationship is not perfect. If we decide to enter into agreement regarding custody of children in case of divorce, will that agreement be bounding even if it is executed outside the U.S.? What are basic requirements for such agreement made outside the U.S.? I prefer to execute such agreement outside the U.S. because outside the U.S. my spouse is usually more cooperating.
