There was no public policy violation in the provision of the settlement agreement converting the $1200 monthly child support payment to a $750 payment into a college educational account because that provision did not relieve ex‑husband of his duty to support his minor child entirely or permanently, which would have been contrary to public policy; rather, the payment was directed into an account for the benefit of the child.
