After a divorce if circumstances change and divorce decisions need to be revised, the process for making changes is called post divorce modifications. Most divorces address many issues, such as alimony, child support, child custody, and transfer of retirement benefits. Sometimes after a divorce, circumstances change. But while certain terms in an agreement or court order may be modifiable, others may not be. When permitted, there is a procedure for modifying agreements or court orders to reflect the new circumstances.
The lawyers at Vetrano | Vetrano & Feinman LLC are skilled in addressing these situations. Call for a consultation on post-divorce issues.
Enforcement of Marital Settlement Agreements
At the time of dissolution of the marriage, the divorcing couple resolves all issues by written property settlement agreement or by court order. Each party has rights and obligations but sometimes one party fails to comply with the terms of the agreement or order. We can review your agreement to help you find the best way to bring the other spouse or parent into compliance with the agreement or to enforce it through the legal process.
Modification of Court Orders and Family Law Agreements
The circumstances within a family rarely remain the same forever. Therefore, court orders and family law agreements should not be expected to endure for all time. As experienced family lawyers, we can help you address changes and renegotiate post-divorce modifications such as:
- Child custody arrangements
- Visitation and scheduling of parenting time
- Child support
Changes in Circumstances
The right to be supported financially and emotionally by parents belongs to the children. Regardless of changes in the family, these rights will reside with the children. For most court order modifications, a significant change in circumstances is necessary, such as:
- Increase or decrease of income for one or both parties
- Change in children’s educational needs
- Failure to transfer retirement benefits and investments following retirement
- Existence of child abuse or neglect
- New disability, mental illness, or substance abuse problems
