Post-Divorce Modifications

Sometimes things change after divorce – either because of time, a child’s growth or a parent’s decision. Not all life changes require a new order or motion to modify the divorce agreement. But when the change becomes material and substantial, our firm will fully develop the facts to demonstrate to the court why it is in the child’s best interest that the previously stated rights, custody terms or child support amounts require change. We are experienced in pursuing and defending post-divorce modifications, such as:

  • Child custody and visitation modifications
  • Child support modifications
  • Alimony/spousal support modifications
  • Other post-decree modifications

Enforcement/Contempt of Court Actions

When a parent refuses to honor visitation agreements, fails to pay child support or fails to comply with other court orders, the parent is in contempt of court. In most circumstances, it is important that a child is supported by and has meaningful relationships with both parents. That is why it is so important to follow custody, visitation and support arrangements. Failure to do so can jeopardize the child’s well being. If a parent willfully and recklessly avoided complying with orders when it was feasible to do so, the parent may be charged criminally with contempt and could face potential jail time, fines and other consequences. Our attorneys help clients pursue court orders of enforcement.
