Question


#1

Unfortunately, unless you both agree to make changes to your separation agreement, it is unlikely that you will be able to change the terms of your agreement. If your agreement was drafted by an attorney, you should contact that attorney for more specific advice on the terms of your agreement.

Best of luck to you!

My husband and I separated May of 2002 and I signed a separation agreement since then I have rethought the idea that he gets everything (my mistake). There was no abandonment, infidelity, etc. just a parting of the ways. The divorce has not even been filed as of yet, and I am wondering if there is any way to now change the separation agreement? I contributed to the marriage and home for 7 years (we were married in 1996, I lived with him a year before we got married) and now reside in Pennsylvania and he still resides in NC. [?]

Thank you
