In his filing, made at a Los Angeles court it states that Bratman and Aguilera have worked out a private agreement over legal and physical custody of their son, spousal support and the division of their properties, assets and debts.
Aguilera and Bratman signed a prenuptial agreement when they married and the singer had previously requested that all of her earnings, even those made while she was married to him, are treated as her own property during the divorce proceedings.
