Voluntary child support agreement letters are usually written by the breadwinner of a family in the event of a separation or a divorce. In circumstances where there are children involved, it is important to write a child support agreement so that their future is not at risk. By law, the father has to provide child support for his children and if he writes a child support agreement letter voluntarily, things become a little less complicated.
A voluntary child support agreement letter is usually written to an attorney to provide him with a gist of the father’s intent to pay. This document can then be used to file paperwork for child support. The contents of a child support agreement letter are simple – the father details how much he will pay as child support and what payment schedule will be followed. This type of agreement letter is usually written amicably and has some detail in it regarding the agreement between parents.
Since most of the details are handed by attorneys during divorces, a child support agreement letter is notarized through an attorney as well. If you are in a quandary as to what to write in a voluntary child support agreement letter, you can have a look at the sample given below:

Dear Mr. Tarin:
The following represents a voluntary child support agreement that I have drawn to be notarized for immediate effect.
I, Samuel Jackson, resident of 78 Polly Avenue, Naples, FL, voluntarily agree to provide child support to my children Daniel Jackson (6 years of age) and Hanna Jackson (4 years of age) on the terms listed below:
• A monthly amount of $1500 will be paid to my ex-wife Jenna Jackson, solely to be used for personal expenses for our children.
• The said amount will be paid into Jenna Jackson’s personal account at Bank of America by the 3rd day of each month.
• Child support payments will continue for both Daniel and Hanna until both of them are 21 years of age. If Hanna marries before she turns 21, this payment will be seized from her account.
• Both Daniel and Hanna will be carried on my health insurance policy until they are 25 years of age or until they are insured on their own, in the event of which these will seize.
• A college fund for both Daniel and Hanna will be set up which will commence for 4 years following each child’s graduation. An annual sum of $5000 will be collectively credited to these accounts.
I agree to have this letter presented in court as a legal document once it has been notarized. It can be used to finalize the divorce agreement between Jenna Jackson and me.
