If I have signed a mediation-prepared parenting plan, is there any chance of getting it changed?
First let me preface my answer by stating that I am not licensed in the state of Tennessee, although Cordell & Cordell does have attorneys who are licensed in the state of Tennessee who would be happy to discuss your case with you.
Generally, in most jurisdictions a court will require the parties to abide by the terms of any agreement signed by the parties. However, if there were facts that were withheld or not disclosed it may be possible that a court would set aside the agreement.
Furthermore, if your circumstances have changed or the children’s mother’s circumstances have changed then you may be able to ask the Court to modify the parenting plan. In most jurisdictions, a Court retains the ability to modify parenting plans at any time, if it is warranted.
You should speak to an attorney in your jurisdiction to get specific advice as to what you need to do in your jurisdiction.
