Customer Question

My lawyer wants to file a speedy Divorce asking for child support and maintenance. He said we can always go back and amend. I'm concerned before I sign that my attorney made
no mention of half my husbands retirement plan since we've been married 26 years. Can my attorney modify after the divorce and add the retirement that I'm entitled to?

I think being silent on the retirement account would hurt your case. While divorce decrees can be amended, judges usually only allow it when there has been a change in circumstances. I would recommend addressing it in the present case.
