Post-Divorce Enforcement And Modification Issues
Unforeseen complications sometimes arise after a divorce settlement. One parent may suddenly decide to no longer pay child support, or another parent may have lost a job and can no longer afford to pay the child support ordered by the court.
Both scenarios require legal attention. In either case, we can assist in post-divorce enforcement and modification issues. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys at Meyer & Bowden, PLLC, understand family law. We will advocate for you in pursuing legal action against a former spouse shirking his or her financial responsibilities. And we will represent you in the post-divorce modification process if your income changes or the needs of your children change.
Some Of The Reasons For Modifications
We will help you enforce or revise a court order to ensure the rights of your children as well as your parental rights. And this may include matters related to child support as well as child custody. If a former spouse is consistently late in making child support payments, or decides to no longer pay support, we will take them to court. As experienced litigators, we are always prepared to go to trial if that becomes necessary.
And a post-divorce modification may lead to adjustments or even terminations related to a court order. The reasons may include:
- Changes in the child’s needs: This could lead to adjustments in child support, child custody and the visitation schedule. For example, an increase in health care costs may lead to a modification.
- A parent’s change in income: If a parent loses his or her job, or gains a significant pay raise, a modification may be requested
- When a parent wants to move out of state and bring the child with him or her, custody and visitation will need to be reviewed and modified.
