Yes, you can agree to supoort.  However, understand that ther are guidlelines in place in every state as to child support and it is in your best interest to adhere to those guidlelines or specifically opt out and do so with the help if a lawyer on both sides. Here is a pamphlet you should take a look at.  Good luck.
