The family court accepted your settlement or entered a divorce decree. Everything is final. However, after all of that work, planning for every contingency, something unexpected comes up that affects the finalization of the divorce.
Advocating for all Your Post-Divorce Issues
The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer provides capable court advocacy for all post-divorce issues, such as:
- You or your former spouse lost a job, so it’s impossible to meet the financial commitments;
- Your or your former spouse accepted a career opportunity out of state, which changes your custody plan;
- The dependent spouse remarries, so the need for spousal support is called into question; and
- Your former spouse simply decided not to abide by the court order and continuously violates your rights.
When faced with changed circumstances or noncompliance, you have two choices:
- Seek a modification that adapts your order to the new situation; or
- Ask the court to enforce your existing order.
If you have a complaint about how your property was distributed, you’ll have to show more than a sudden financial need. Unless your property division attorney has uncovered some evidence of fraud, that part of your divorce decree may not be open for modification.
