How do I file an amendment to my Texas divorce decree?

Asked almost 5 years ago - Houston, TX

2 sets of documents were filed with the court for my divorce and the judge signed the wrong version. My ex and I signed an amendment stating he owed money to me correcting the judge's error. Now he is not paying and I can not get a writ of execution since the amendment was not signed by the judge. How do I file the amendment with the court? It was dated in April 2008. Is there a time frame for filing it?

    Answered . This could be complicated. I would need to look at all the documents to be sure what needs to be done, but It could be difficult as it is over 1 year old. Call my office for a free consultation so we can discuss your options.
