West Palm Beach Divorce Modification Enforcement Attorney
Divorce Modification Enforcement
Occasionally after a court order, situations may change that warrant a modification to the program, be it alimony, child support, or child custody. There are many reasons that could make a modification necessary: change in financial status, relocation, or a change in availability, to name a few. Petitioning the court may be necessary if the two parties cannot reach a decision on their own.
On occasion, a party decides that they are not going to adhere to the terms court’s order. To enforce child support, alimony, or visitation standards, it may be necessary to take the other party to court to settle the issue. The Court has the power and authority to impose powerful remedies including contempt of court, wage garnishments for nonpayment, and impose liens to compel payment.
Contact West Palm Beach Divorce Attorney Steve Winig to begin the process, and take the right steps to protect your family.
After a Final Judgment is entered, one of the parties may have a change of circumstances which requires the modification of said judgment.
What can be modified?
Parties may seek to modify the following including, but not limited to:
- Child Support
- Child Custody
- Parental Responsibility
- Time Sharing
How can I Modify my Final Judgment?
If both parties are in agreement with the proposed modification, the parties can draft an agreement clearly stating the modification terms. However, if both parties are not in agreement, the party requesting modification must file a Supplemental Petition for Modification setting forth what he or she wishes to modify. The Supplemental Petition must also state the substantial change in circumstance which has occurred since the Final Judgment was entered and explain why the requested modification is warranted. In modification cases, the parties are often ordered to attend mediation in an effort to resolve the issue prior to hearing. If the parties are unable to come to an agreement, the Court will then hear the matter and make an appropriate determination.
