Can You Revisit Property Division Issues After Your Divorce is Finalized?
When you are going through a divorce, a key aspect of the process will involve going through your shared assets and property and dividing them up in an equitable way. But let’s say a few months after your divorce is finalized, you believe there was either an unfair element to the property division process or you simply are unable to afford all the property you received (such as if you got to keep the house). What happens then?
It’s natural for there to be frustrations related to how property gets divided in a divorce. However, frustration alone is not enough to convince a judge to revisit the case and change the outcome. There must be extreme circumstances for the court to go back and take another look.
Although courts do wish to ensure judgments are final, they also have a vested interest in ensuring there has been a proper division of property and allocation of support. If you wish to have a court revisit your divorce’s property division, you must show the court that there was fraud, misrepresentation, newly discovered evidence, or other similar situation.
If any of these elements is present in your case, contact a skilled Minnesota divorce attorney at Appelhof, Pfeifer & Hart, P.A. to learn more about your options.
