Can changes be made to a divorce already granted?
I would like to know if any changes can be made to the terms of the divorce after a divorce has already been granted. I didn’t have a lawyer assisting me and felt like i was bullied into accepting the terms.
A decree of divorce is final. It terminates a marriage when granted by a Judicial Officer after due process. However if it was granted in error or by fraud, it can be set aside through an application in the High Court detailing that error or fraud.
Changes can only be made to some of the terms of a divorce such as maintenance and access rights. That is also done on application to the court. This happens when conditions change after the first order is granted.
