Both parties signed a stipulation that the Judge signed and turned into an order.
One point states: all issues regarding child support and child support arrears are “reserved”. What exactly does that mean?
ANSWER: When a court “reserves” an issue, it means that the court still has the right to decide that issue at a later time. So even if the issues of child support and child support arrears were before the court but were not decided as a part of the stipulation and order, the court “reserves” the right to come back and revisit the issue at another time. It basically means that the issues of child support and child support arrears are still open and can be decided in the future.
