Often, a decree is modified by agreement where former spouses amicably agree that the divorce decree is no longer fair to one party or they have come to understand that the terms in the original agreement are no longer workable. Under these circumstances, they must still file a petition for modification in the court and proceed through the normal process ultimately ending with the judge signing their agreed order.
