Ending a marriage is never easy. Even when both spouses agree it’s for the best, the legal process of divorce can be confusing and emotionally draining. That’s why it’s common for spouses to have regrets or second thoughts after the divorce is finalized. This leads many to wonder – can you change the grounds for divorce after the final decree?The short answer is yes, it is possible but very difficult. The grounds for divorce refer to the reason the marriage is ending – things like irreconcilable differences, adultery, or abandonment. The grounds are outlined in the original divorce petition.Once the divorce is finalized by a judge, it becomes much harder to modify the terms. However, there are certain legal scenarios where a spouse may successfully appeal or amend a finalized divorce judgment.
Most modern divorces use “no-fault” grounds like irreconcilable differences. This makes the process smoother since you don’t have to prove fault or wrongdoing.However, some states still allow “fault” divorces on grounds like adultery or cruelty. These can impact how assets are divided. The spouse found “at fault” may get less.If you originally filed a fault divorce and got a favorable settlement, changing to no-fault could hurt you financially. But if you’re the “at fault” spouse, switching to no-fault may improve your outcome.It’s important to weigh the reasons carefully before attempting to change divorce grounds post-decree. Consult a divorce lawyer for guidance.
Appealing a divorce means asking a higher court to review the trial court’s decision. This is done when your lawyer believes the original trial did not correctly follow legal procedures.Amending a divorce means asking the same court to modify the original decree. This requires proving either unfair asset disclosure or a significant change in circumstances.Some examples of scenarios where amending a divorce may be possible:
Even in these cases, it is challenging to reopen a settled divorce. You need an experienced lawyer and strong evidence to support your argument for a change.Simply being unhappy with the outcome is not enough grounds to appeal or amend a finalized divorce decree.
While amending the grounds for divorce is difficult, there are some other options to improve an unsatisfactory decree:
Going through a divorce is a challenging time emotionally and financially. With the guidance of an experienced divorce attorney, you can ensure your rights are protected in the original decree. This makes the need for any post-divorce changes less likely.
