Reasons for Post Decree Modifications
Court orders reached during a divorce cannot be changed for just any reason. There are a variety of valid reasons, however, why changes could be made to divorce issues that include visitation rights, spousal support, custody and child support. These issues may include:
- Loss of a job
- Loss of income or increase in income
- Medical expenses resulting from an injury or illness
- Relocation due to a job or marriage
- Need for additional support due to changing needs of the child
- Contempt issues
As with every family law issue involving children, any modifications to divorce orders must be done with the best interests of the children in mind and the court will use that as the most important standard when making decisions.
Our firm can also help with the enforcement of agreements or court orders that were reached during a divorce. If your ex-spouse has not followed the court order, they may be held in contempt by the court. Our lawyers will seek the resolutions that you deserve.
