Good Faith and Fair Dealing
When spouses enter into an agreement, either to settle their divorce amicably or settle an aspect of their divorce amicably, the law requires both parties to accomplish the agreement through good faith and fair dealing. One party cannot refuse to participate in the fullfillment of the agreement and then complain that the agreement was not completed by the other party. Implied in every agreement is a covenant that each party will not act in a way which will deprive the other party of the benefits of the contract. Legally, each party has the responsibility of doing everything that the contract requires and refraining from doing anything that would render performance impossible.
