Any agreements or court orders that arise out of legal proceedings may be subject to adjustments or modification if circumstances change.
Changes in employment, income, marital status and living arrangements, relocation, are among the circumstances that could warrant a modification of the terms of an initial agreement or court order. This can create a need for modifications to child custody, child support or spousal support agreements or orders, which for example, may increase or decrease a party’s financial obligation.
Enforcement of court orders becomes necessary if one party of a divorce fails to uphold the terms of an agreement or violates a court order. This is often seen in cases of unpaid child support or child relocation matters (moving a child out of range for proper visitation and custody arrangements). If this is your situation, you may need to seek legal intervention by the court. In such cases, it is possible that the court will award legal fees to the non-defaulting party.
Whether you are seeking assistance in changing existing orders, or need help protecting your rights in post-divorce or post-judgment enforcement of court orders, the attorneys at our firm can render effective legal services at a reasonable cost.
