My ex has been deducting various amounts from payments due me as per our Settlement Agreement. I filed to amend, modify or void the Settlement Agreement. The Judge dismissed it because it wasn’t filed within six months. The problem didn’t become out of control until after six months. What recourse do I have? I have received half of what was agreed to be mine?
The judge ruled correctly on not allowing you to amend, modify or void the MSA. However, this does not mean that you do not have remedies. If the MSA was ordered by the court and your ex is not abiding bu the order then he could possibly be in contempt.
Contact an attorney in your area and discuss your remedies.
