  1. amendment could be defined as a supplement or a change to a document that was previously filed.


  2. If you don't understand how to file an amendment, I would contact a lawyer who does family law in your jurisdiction. If you're only asking for them to draft an amendment that you would then file yourself, the lawyer will likely quote you a low reasonable flat fee for the amendment.
