Modifications After Divorce in Ocala
Life changes. Divorce agreements can be changed, too!
It is inevitable that after an initial divorce order, circumstances will change in either one or both parties' lives. Whether losing a job, relocating to another state or failing to pay child support, a modification or enforcement of the divorce agreement may be required. If you require a modification or enforcement of your divorce order or settlement agreement, seek assistance from an Ocala divorce attorney as soon as possible to start the process.
At the law firm of Anne E. Raduns, PA, we are dedicated to providing compassionate and effective divorce representation. This does not stop after an initial divorce order or settlement agreement. This continues on as circumstances in your life, your former spouse's life or your child's life change. The divorce agreement must accurately reflect what is going on currently, not what was happening 10 years ago at the time of your divorce and when life was probably very different than it is now. We can help you petition to modify a divorce agreement for child support, child custody or alimony. In some cases, enforcement is necessary when one party is in contempt or fails to follow the agreement. We can also help with contempt and enforcement matters. We provide experienced legal counsel and dedicated representation in petitions to modify the following matters:
- Child Support
There must have been a significant change in circumstances such as losing a job, changing a job or remarriage
- Child Custody
A custody modification may be required due to changes in work schedules, domestic violence issues or because of an out-of-state relocation
A former spouse may have a new partner with whom he or she is cohabitating with or commingling assets with, in which case a modification or even termination can be sought, or the payor spouse is ready to retire and is seeking a termination.
Contempt and Enforcement of Divorce Orders in Ocala
Whether your former spouse is failing to keep up with the payments for child support or alimony or has completely failed on paying any support, we can help to enforce the court orders. If necessary, we will hold your former spouse in contempt, which may result in enforcement actions including an arrest and jail time. The same holds true for non-compliance with a parenting plan. If a party relocates without court approval, he or she can be held in contempt. Call us to schedule a consultation and to discuss the situation!
