How to make a binding child support agreement?

This legitimate counsel must be given by a practitioner who has been conceded by the Supreme Court of a state and holds a current legal practicing certificate. Legitimate counsel won’t be viewed as independent in conditions where:
- One party has given legitimate guidance to themselves
- One gathering has given lawful exhortation to the other party
- The same practitioner has given legitimate guidance to both parties
In this situation, the Registrar will find that the child support agreement is not a binding agreement under section 80C. The parent who requested the consent to be accepted may wish to pull back the application for acknowledgment and re-apply once independent legitimate counsel has been acquired. On the other hand, the candidate could request the consent to be acknowledged as a limited agreement. The tenets for the acknowledgment of a limited agreement are distinctive and may prevent the acceptance of the child support agreement.
