If You Need Enforcement Or Modification Help

Your final judgment and decree will resolve your immediate issues and set up a parenting plan and support provisions, and will divide your property so you can start building separate lives.

However, it does not always end there. The needs of your children can change, your income can change, your budget or income can lead to a need to review a spousal maintenance order, and property division provisions can require modification or enforcement. All of these situations can lead to post-judgment modification or enforcement proceedings.

After a divorce, the circumstances of one or both parties often will change. If the original divorce decree included a child support order or a spousal support order, those orders may need to be modified in the event of changes involving income or employment status.

In some instances, the decree will also divide property in a way that involves future events such as a deferred sale of the homestead or lien against an asset for a future equalization payment from one spouse to another to make up for an unequal division. These can lead to requests for modification or enforcement of the decree.
