Have you ever wondered if a divorce is always final or whether a divorce judgment can be “undone” or “modified?” The short answer: Like everything else, it depends.
In general, divorce and divorce judgements are final. You can’t “undo” a divorce, so to speak. The finality of a divorce is critically important. Imagine the horror if your spouse was suddenly able to reverse the divorce decree and you found yourself still married!
Why would you want to undo divorce decrees in the first place? Common reasons include:
- You reconciled after all
- You didn’t like the trial judgement
- You believe the terms of the final divorce settlement were unfair
