A Question On Divorce Modification

Question About Divorce Modification

I have a question about Divorce Modification.  My ex-husband agreed to take cash in exchange for my pension and retirement. Now he wants half. We finalized the divorce for 3 months. My lawyer helped us put together the decree. Do I have a chance of getting the decree set aside?


Generally, the court will not set aside a finalized decree agreed to in writing. An exception would occur if full disclosure didn’t happen, some other misrepresentation or if you made the agreement under duress or when one of the parties became incapacitated. Thus, based on the facts you have given, this seems like a difficult order to set aside. For more information consult with your attorney or see my blog.
