(b) Matters settled by an agreement incorporated in the decree, other than matters pertaining to the legal custody, residency, visitation, parenting time, support or education of the minor children, shall not be subject to subsequent modification by the court except: (1) As prescribed by the agreement; or (2) as subsequently consented to by the parties.

CASE ANNOTATIONS

1. An agreement to pay maintenance that was not incorporated into the decree of divorce is subject to modification. In re Marriage of Gerleman, 56 K.A.2d 578, 435 P.3d 552 (2018).

2. When a matter has been settled by a mediation agreement and incorporated into the divorce decree, a court generally cannot modify that order unless the parties consent or the agreement permits modification, but the interpretation of a journal entry approving a settlement agreement is a question of law over which the court of appeals exercises unlimited review. In re Marriage of Doud & Modrcin, 59 K.A.2d 244, 480 P.3d 800 (2020).
