POST JUDGMENT ENFORCEMENT & MODIFICATION
When a party willfully fails to comply with an Order requiring payment of alimony or child support payments, or to follow an Order relating to custody or visitation, the law authorizes the filing of a contempt action to enforce the Court Order. Upon a finding of contempt, the offender can be ordered to cooperate or face incarceration. The court can also order the offender to pay the other side’s attorneys fees.
We have experience representing clients seeking enforcement of prior orders, as well as those clients defending such an action.
If you have experienced a substantial change in circumstances since your divorce or paternity action was finalized then you may have grounds to seek a modification of that order. Parties often seek to modify timesharing and parenting issues due to the age and changing needs of the children.
The child support is often modified due to an increase or decrease a party's income. Finally, alimony is often modified or terminated due to a change in a party's marital status or an increase or decrease in either party's income. In order to determine whether your court order or settlement agreement may be modified, schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys.
