Customer Question

my ex-husband has filed a vacate an order motion on our no-contest mutual divorce, on the pretense he did not know what he was signing. What is the chance of the judge agreeing to this when the divorce papers were notorized

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

That is very, very thin. That is, if the documentation was notarized AND he wasn't threatened, you had no duty to explain to him what was being signed. The obligation and burden was on him. So unless he can show that he was legitimately out of sorts and you somehow took advantage, the fact that he didn't know what he signed is not good enough to get this overturned.
