Hi, thank you for your question. When did they settle the financial matter and was their "agreement" approved by a court?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
probaly but he had no legal help just signed in state of mind
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. If the agreement was approved by the court in a court order then there is no way to vary the lump sum agreement as that will be fully binding. However, if it can be proved that there was misrepresentation, fraud or coercion at the time of your partner signing the agreement then there may be grounds to have it reviewed by a court.I hope this assists you.
