Enforcement and Modification After Judgment
Circumstances change. Sometimes, even after a divorce is finalized, clients need help enforcing the conditions of the divorce decree or wish to obtain a modification to support, child custody or visitation.
Modification usually requires a showing of a “substantial change of circumstances” for one of the parties. Modifications to child support and custody orders can be sought if the modification is necessary and in the best interest of the child.
Circumstances that may warrant modifications include relocation by one parent to another state affecting custody or visitation, or a change in the economic circumstances in one of the parties requiring a modification of the amount of child support or spousal support being paid.
The Law Offices of Coughlin Rainboth Murphy and Lown has experience helping clients enforce their rights and successfully obtain modifications in a variety of circumstances.
