Can I change legal separation paperwork once it is filed?

Asked about 2 years ago - Gilbert, AZ

My husband agrees with almost all of the legal separation paperwork except one or two things. We have now come to an agreement and I was wondering if I can change it or if he has to file back with the changes?

    Answered . If you have not filed the Default paperwork yet, you can file an amended Petition for Legal Separation. He will need to be served again with the Amended Petition; this can be by him signing an Acceptance of Service, or, because it is an Amended Petition, he can be served by regular mail.

    If he files a Response, your case become contested and it then follows a different path.
