changing divorce agreement
      #681836 - 08/11/10 03:23 AM

i feel like i really made a mistake with my divorce. at the time i just wanted it over. ex was dragging things out for so long i felt i couldnt afford to continue so i gave in on things that i now feel were not fair. we have 3 children 19,17,8). the 19 yr old lives with me and is attending college. the 17 yr old lives with my ex, he is suppose to be able to visit me when he chooses, the 8 yr old spends half his time with me, half with his dad. ex demanded to be primary residential parent. the papers say we have joint custody. my attorney said with joint custody that the only thing the primary residential parent meant was that the children would go to school where the "primary" parent resides. didnt think it was that big a deal since we do live in the same town. my ex tells everyone that he has custody of his sons, that i gave up custody to him. did my lawyer tell me wrong??? Also, ex demanded to be able to claim both boys on his taxes. i gave in on that also and now am regretting it because it seems like i pay for much more for the 8 yr old than he does. there is no child support. at the time of the divorce we made about the same amount of money. however shortly before the divorce was over he took on a new job and now makes twice as much as i do. i think the fair thing would be for me to claim 1 child, him claim 1 child and we each get to claim the 3rd child every other year. how difficult would it be to go back to court to change how we handle the kids as far a tax deductions?
