Circumstances Change: Experienced Attorneys For Modifications And Enforcement
Coming up with an agreement or getting the final order from the court may be just the beginning of your family law matter. Circumstances may change sooner or later, which require revisiting your agreement. And unfortunately, in some cases, parties are not able to follow or are unwilling to follow agreements or orders of the court.
Modifications | Sometimes Your Order Just Needs An Update
It is a challenge to draft an agreement that covers every possible change in circumstance that you may encounter. If you reach an agreement on custody and parenting time when your children are very young, you cannot always anticipate what their needs would be as school age or teenage young adults. Sometimes the agreement needs to be changed because of relocation or employment changes. There are a number of different reasons why an order needs to be updated. Some of the common reasons include:
- Increased or decreased earnings of a parent affecting child support issues
- Relocation of a parent affecting parenting time and custody
- Increased extracurricular or activity expenses
- Special needs of a child
- Change in parenting time schedule followed
- Other change in circumstances
These are just some of the issues we frequently encounter. If you need assistance in modifying your agreement or order of the court, our attorneys can assist you.
Enforcement Issues? We Can Help.
Enforcement issues can present as a concern shortly after or long after a proceeding has concluded. You may be entitled to receive child support or spousal maintenance and the other party isn’t paying or claims to be unable to pay. You may be facing a contempt order because you were unable to meet your obligations under the current court order. Perhaps a property dispute arose after the order was issued which affects the property settlement.
