Changes in circumstances after the divorce or dissolution of marriage often require that one or both of the spouses request modification or enforcement of alimony, child support, visitation, custody and other terms of the orders issued by the Court.
Any spouse can petition for a modification or enforcement of an order at any time. However, this does not mean that a modification especially to financial obligations will be ordered. The probably outcome of the request often can be forecasted by a qualified family law attorney so in many cases it is best to allow a divorce lawyer to guide and represent you during this process.
The family law attorneys of Tiller Law can assist you in reviewing the terms of any order including child support and alimony to assess whether you have grounds for a modification or an enforcement mechanism. The main consideration of the Court is often whether or not there has been a material change in circumstances that require the modification. A case will be presented to the Court and often an agreement can be reached prior to a Judges final decision eliminating uncertainty and reducing costs.
In many cases one spouse may default on their financial obligations whether it is the payment of child support, alimony or any other term of the divorce settlement or decree. The attorneys at Tiller Law can represent you in either seeking to enforce the terms against a defaulting spouse or defend a spouse that has defaulted on their obligations. In many cases there are good rounds such as the inability to pay. Enforcement may be sought and could result in the suspension of driving privileges, wage garnishment or even contempt of court.
