Orange Park, FL asked in Divorce for Florida

Q: Can I go back to court and re-negotiate the terms of our divorce agreement?

I officially got divorced in August last year. I agreed to pay a storage and dock fee for the boat we co-owned a the time (but only she has sole use of the boat) until the boat is sold (which she is supposed to do). It is coming up on a year and she has still not sold the boat and I am still paying $200 per month. Can I go back to court and request to no longer pay this as she has had ample time to sell the boat?

A: If there is a time limit in which the former wife was supposed to sell the boat and she hasn’t done so, then you may have a contempt action against her.
