Child Custody and Support Modifications
In matters of child custody, I am very child-focused. I work to handle post-divorce issues for my clients so they can make things right and move on with their lives.
In general, to approve a child custody or support modification, the court will need to see that circumstances have changed significantly — or will change significantly — since the original order was made.
Types of child custody and support modifications include:
- An upward or downward support modification for college / education funding
- An upward or downward support modification for changes in income or needs of the child
- A modification of custody to address changes in work or school schedules
- A modification of custody to address one parent’s plans to relocate with the child
- A modification of custody to protect the safety and well-being of the child
Divorce Order Modifications Regarding Property Division
A spouse who fails to follow a court order regarding marital property division could be held in contempt of court.
For example, a divorce order may address the division of retirement savings or the value of real estate. If one of the spouses fails to comply with the property division order, it may be necessary to take the issue to court.
As a divorce attorney with experience in real estate and complex property issues, I can advise you on the best path forward to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
A modification of alimony may be necessary for a number of reasons, including:
- The paying spouse is no longer able to pay
- The receiving spouse becomes self-supporting
- The receiving spouse remarries
If you have questions about any of these matters, I can assess your situation, explain your options and help you seek an appropriate solution.
