Can a settlement agreement in a divorce be amended if agreed to by both parties?
Example: In our divorce settlement in 1994, each of us agreed NOT to have a non-married spouse (girlfriend/boyfriend) stay the night when our son is present. At the time it was based on religious grounds, but we both now agree that particular condition can be nixed. For both our protection though, we feel it best to have in writing.
Can we execute an amendment document on our own to eliminate that clause, and both sign agreeing to the change?
Or does it need to go through the court system or some other complicated process?
