decree still subject to change
April 14, 2002
Unlike many of our friends, my husband and I have been able to resolve the majority of issues surrounding our divorce. However, we were wondering if there was a way to keep us out of the court system if disputes arise in the future. We talked to our lawyers and looked on the Internet and found basically nothing we thought could help us. Even though the “final” decree has been signed, and everyone goes in separate directions thinking it’s over, that’s not always the case because things change after divorce: One or both of you remarry or move. One of you needs more money, or the other can’t afford the payments. One of you makes more money and is asked to increase the payments, or the other becomes ill and can’t make payments at all. One of you files bankruptcy. And it goes on. Something always comes up that no one expected. Then what happens? Without planning, the process starts over again, and lives are disrupted again.

If you’re attached, another will pull in very close, loving and appreciating the time he or she has with you.
