Revising a Divorce Judgment
There are many reasons you may need to revise a judgment since circumstances often change in life, particularly when you have children. You may find that you or your spouse’s income has significantly changed and that you may need a revision of your divorce judgment to fairly represent the terms agreed to in your divorce. Another reason you may need to revise a judgment is if there are changes that must be made to accommodate your children and their needs as they age. What may have worked for you and your ex-spouse when your children were under age five may not still be in the best interests of your family when they are in high school.
Correcting and Clarifying Divorce Judgments
Sometimes, a divorce judgment may have terms that are not quite clear to the parties. This can happen often in pro se cases where you and your ex-spouse draft your own divorce judgment. It is not unusual for ex-spouses to find that the divorce judgment terms they thought they agreed upon are interpreted a bit differently in reality. When you are facing an issue of a different interpretation of the terms of your divorce judgment, it will benefit both former spouses to have our attorneys review and explain the divorce judgment as it stands. Then, if certain terms are unclear, we will correct and clarify the language in the divorce judgment to better fit each former spouse’s understanding of the meaning of the term or terms in the judgment.
Another instance where our divorce lawyers can help you revise or correct a pre-existing divorce judgment is where there are errors in the judgment that need to be corrected. Divorce judgments can be lengthy documents, and particularly when they are done pro se (drafted without an attorney), you may find that there are mistakes in the document that need to be corrected. These mistakes are often minor, but in legal documents, a missing word or a small typo can make a big difference in the application of the judgment.
If you have found errors or misconstrued terms that are affecting the way you and your former spouse are interpreting your divorce judgment, you both will benefit from having one of our skilled Wisconsin divorce attorneys review the judgment and make the necessary corrections. By making these corrections, you and your former spouse can be on the same page moving forward.
