Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - We often get calls to the DAWN office from women who have recently signed their final divorce judgment, but want it changed. They claim they did not agree to what was in it or that they did not understand it. When you sign your divorce papers, you are accepting the terms of the divorce as they are laid out in the final judgment.
"At that point, you have very little recourse", says DAWN attorney, Ken Saukas "You would have to prove fraud, duress or mutual mistake to have the judgment set aside once it is entered with the court."
The bottom line is that you need to carefully read your final judgment and ask your attorney to explain it in detail, especially if you are unsure of what any of it means. This needs to be done before you are prepared to sign it.
Having a competent family law attorney assisting you reduces the likelihood of getting yourself into this predicament.
