Post-Divorce Modifications and Enforcement

Post-Divorce Modifications and Enforcement

Northern New Jersey Lawyers Helping Clients Obtain Modification and Enforcement of Divorce Orders

In these tough economic times, it is not uncommon for a former spouse to have difficulty making alimony and child support payments, especially if they have lost their job. In addition, a change in job status may also make it necessary to obtain a modification of a child custody order due to relocation.

Regardless of the situation, our firm can help clients secure modifications regarding:

  • Alimony: Either the spouse paying alimony or the spouse receiving alimony may petition the court for a modification of alimony payments. However, the party seeking the modification must demonstrate a substantial change in circumstances.
  • Child support: It is possible to modify a child support order. In making its decision, the court will always place the best interests of the child first. Several factors will be carefully examined, including the needs of the child and the financial circumstances of each parent.
  • Child custody and visitation: Modifications of custodial and visitation arrangements are often necessary as the needs of both children and parents change over time. Modification requests can be brought about by either parent, who must then demonstrate a substantial change in circumstances. The primary concern of the court in these matters is the best interests of the children.

Enforcement of Orders

If an ex-husband or ex-wife does not abide by the terms of your divorce decree, child custody arrangement, alimony or child support order, we can help you take the appropriate action. Many potential remedies exist to rectify the situation, ranging from wage garnishment to incarceration if the person is found to be willfully refusing to comply with a court order.
