What To Do If You Change Your Mind About Your Divorce

Decision2Because divorce is a big decision, and every issue within the divorce is also an important decision in your life, it’s no surprise that second thoughts might come up. Here’s what to do if you’re rethinking a decision you’ve made.

–          If you are in the middle of a divorce and suddenly believe you don’t want a divorce after all, you need to talk to your spouse. One person can’t save a marriage. It will take two of you. If your spouse is willing to try again, counseling would be an excellent idea. If you do decide to work on your marriage, let your attorney know you would like to put the case on hold.

–          If you have agreed to a settlement in your divorce, but now are rethinking it, you need to talk to your attorney immediately. If the settlement has not been formalized with the court, you may have the opportunity to renege on it. Putting the brakes on a settlement can make it harder to reach another agreement down the line, but if you believe what you have agreed to is unfair or not what you want, you have every right to do so.

–          If your divorce has concluded and you have your divorce decree, but you are questioning things you have agreed to, there is probably not much that can be done right now unless an error was made. Parenting agreements and child support can be modified once some time has passed. Decisions about property division are much more difficult to change. Get in touch with your attorney and talk about your concerns.
