Post-Judgment Modification and Enforcement Proceedings
After a divorce order is finalized, you or your former spouse may find it necessary to make a modification or to enforce a provision of your Agreement or Order. While these cases can become complex, it is possible to seek a modification to a custody or support agreement. Lawrence B. LaRaus, Esq. is experienced in handling cases on behalf of individuals seeking modifications as well as in the defense against modifications, or in the enforcement of your rights.
A need for a modification to a child support or maintenance (alimony) order may arise if payor is unable to make a payment, lost a job, or has a change in income that affects his or her ability to pay. Similarly, an increase in payment obligations can be obtained if the payor has an increase in wages or has had a change in financial circumstances that make additional funds available. We can help you obtain a child support or alimony modification to increase or decrease payments obligations. We can also help you defend against such an application.
