No ! Children are not parties to such an agreement and would not be bound by it. Accordingly, minor children are able to file their own, independent plea in the future.If filed, the court will decide on it according to its merits.
Agreements concerning children, whether they are about custody or maintenance , and even judgments on these subjects, are never viewed as ‘final’ or ‘closed’ in the eyes of Israeli law, because children’s needs and circumstances change.
