Can a marital settlement agreement be set aside before the Judge signs it?

My husband's attorney drafted a settlement agreement that we both signed, but no final hearing was ever requested and nothing has been finalized. If we are both in agreement to set it aside and redo part of the agreement, is that possible and if so, how do we do it? I cannot get any answers from his attorney and I do not have one.

Yes, you can rewrite it or amend it. Just make sure you do before the judge signs off on it. It will probably be done in chambers rather than in court.
