Not happy with the divorce agreement terms


#1

My husband got divorced 8 yrs ago. The divorce agreement was drafted by his EX and he agreed. Even we found the terms are not that fair, we still try out best to follow. But now, some situation really got changed, for example, his EX and his daughter have moved from NC to NY, we lost visitation right. Both my husband and his EX got higher income and we had 3 more kids at the same time… Today his EX asked us to pay extra 100% of $4550 summer camp in Harvard or share traveling cost to Europe. Actually I think we really review that agreement. Need help !

Assuming your husband and his ex-wife have a separation agreement, you will have to refer to the separation agreement about modifications/amendments. Most separation agreements allow for amendments to be made as long as the amendments are in writing and signed and notarized by both parties. This means that both parties have to agree. Further, some separation agreements will call for mediation or arbitration to occur when one party is seeking an amendment and the other party will not agree.
