Hi, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, as you are married, this agreement does not automatically end financial claims between you and it must be turned into a consent/court order which is approved by the court as being fair for both of you (and any minor children).
Turning this agreement into a court order is not straightforward and you would be best served to approach local solicitors to request their assistance with drafting and finalising a consent order alongside the divorce.
Furthermore, in all financial cases arising out of divorce it would likely be necessary for you to both give the other full and frank financial disclosure as there may be further matrimonial assets that you are entitled to consider or claim arising out of the marriage.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.,
