The agreement in this case included very large alimony payments to the wife and an agreement for the husband to pay the children’s college expenses. The trial court awarded a judgment of $1,128,000 against the ex-husband and awarded $102,475 in attorney’s fees. The few adjustments made to the judgment by the court of appeals did not reduce the ex-husband’s judgment and he almost certainly considers it a total loss. One lesson: an agreement incident to divorce that is incorporated into the divorce decree is enforceable as part of the decree.
