These issues typically include modification of alimony orders, child support orders, custody arrangements or parenting plans and sometimes health insurance arrangements. The ability and extent to which a divorce judgment, and any agreement that has been incorporated into it, may be modified depends on the language of those instruments. We will review the terms of your divorce and help you decide whether a modification is appropriate for you under the circumstances.
Of course, we also represent individuals against whom a modification action has been brought. There are a myriad of defenses to a modification claim and it is imperative that you have capable legal counsel to flesh out the facts and law to ensure that your rights are protected.
Sometimes a party to a divorce judgment is not complying with its various obligations, such as payment of alimony or child support, complying with a parenting plan, dividing assets or maintaining medical insurance. In those circumstances it may be appropriate to file a complaint for contempt against your former spouse to compel compliance with the divorce judgment. If a contempt judgment is entered against your former spouse, you may be entitled to recoup your costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses, relating to the attempted resolution, initiation and prosecution of the contempt action. We will review the facts of your case and help you assess whether you should bring a contempt action against your former spouse.
