Could you tell me a little more about your question?
What issues did you want to renegotiate?
How long ago was the divorce?
You would be requesting the court Modify the Divorce Decree. Alimony and other types of support can be modified if there is a substantial change in circumstances. Depending on how the pay off of the house and other things are worded, they may or may not be able to be modified. Property settlements are usually not modifiable, for obvious reasons. Once a piece of property is awarded, it would not be possible to come back in years later and say that person should not have the property, someone else should. But, in your case, if you are required to pay off the house, you may be able to ask the court to grant you an extension, in exchange for giving him something. I do not know all the details, but you get the picture.
You can always ask for a change in alimony, if you lose your job, or because of other things. You cannot go in and "re-do" all the terms of the divorce.
I hope this answers your question.
