OPINION

Randy J. Holland, Justice

ORDER

This 7th day of April 2014, upon consideration of the appellant's opening brief[2] and the record on appeal, it appears to the Court that:

(1) The appellant, Leslie Moore (" Wife" ), filed this appeal from a Family Court decision dated July 23, 2013. The Family Court's decision reflected the parties' agreement, entered following a two-hour hearing, that the appellee, Ralph West (" Husband" ), would pay Wife a total of $2000.00 in four monthly installments of $500.00 in full satisfaction of her claims for alimony and contribution from Husband for an air conditioning debt.

(2) Wife's opening brief on appeal does not even acknowledge that the Family Court's order was entered with her participation and agreement in full satisfaction of her claims against Husband. A review of the transcript in this matter reflects that Wife fully understood Husband's offer of settlement and that she knowingly accepted his offer in full satisfaction of her claims. While she may now regret it, she offers no reason why she should not be bound by her fully informed agreement to settle her claims. Under the circumstances, we find no error in the Family Court's order entering the parties' settlement agreement as a final judgment of that court.

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED that the judgment of the Family Court is AFFIRMED.
