Marriage of Sabine and Toshio M., B191613

In postdissolution proceeding, judgment for wife that husband owed arrearages on spousal and child support is affirmed as the parties could not lawfully forgive arrearages, overdue support, where the husband agreed to pay only a portion of what he owed since such an agreement is unenforceable where it does not resolve any bona fide disputes between the parties and is offered on a take-it-or-leave-it basis. Moreover, the agreement did not waive future support.
