Can A Non Modifiable Divorce Agreement Be Changed

In McNeil v. Hoskyns, 236 Ariz. 173, 337 P.3d 46 (App. 2014) discussed what happens when an outgoing couple has entered into this type of agreement, but it is later discovered that one of the spouses lied or deceived the court. By failing to disclose that she had received thousands of dollars in double payments from David`s account, Nancy prevented a fair decision on how much David had to pay as a spouse helper after the divorce. Before the family court, the decision and the reason for the divorce are final and cannot be changed. Decisions on the allocation of attorneys` fees and expenses are final and cannot be changed. Decisions on the distribution of matrimonial property and debt, with very limited exceptions, are final and cannot be changed. S.C Ann code. § 20-3-620 (C) (“The court order affecting the distribution of marital property is a final order that can only be changed by appeal or detention after proper appeal.”) “Most of my clients just haven`t understood that non-modifiable really means not modifiable,” Paine said. At the time of the divorce, I was so stressed and my lawyer (not your company) was horrible, so I chose non-modifiable. During the mediation, the amount and length exceeded my expectations, but I felt so pressured that I went.

Now I wonder every day if I`m going to be in jail because I lost my job (I`m in my fifties and I told them I couldn`t keep a job in computer technology anymore at my age) and that I wouldn`t be able to pay. Are there other options? Is there a real divorce reform? Nancy appealed, arguing that the court could not reopen the decree due to her, because the couple admitted that the amount of the spouse`s pension could not be changed or terminated. “The editable medium is still open, so the amount could decrease, but it could also increase,” she said. “Some of my clients don`t want their ex-wives to benefit from their hard work and the increase in wages after the divorce, so they want their support based on their income during the marriage.” The agreement also stated that the amount of the spouse`s allowance could not be changed or terminated by the court. The Court of Appeal found that a court was bound by the agreement of a couple, that alimony/alimony could not be changed. Parties may have specific reasons for choosing non-modifiable alimony, but the most obvious is the elimination of the possibility that the amount will be changed later by the court, so both parties are able to plan their finances accordingly, said Cordell & Cordell attorney Bradley Cunningham.
