Child Support Modification And Enforcement

The court agrees to child support modifications when a parent or child has experienced a substantial change in circumstances. For instance, if you are the paying parent and have experienced a significant involuntary reduction in income and cannot meet your obligation, you might be able to lower the payments. On the other hand, if you receive child support and your child has become disabled, you could be eligible to modify the agreement to receive more money to assist with your child’s increased needs. A post-divorce attorney can assist with the modification if you meet the criteria.

What if you are supposed to receive child support, but the other parent is non-compliant? Our attorneys can explore the legal options for enforcement, including filing a motion for civil contempt. The Florida court system takes these cases seriously and can provide remedies such as garnishing wages to collect past-due child support. Consult with our firm today to discuss your legal options.

Alimony Modification And Enforcement

While alimony is often a short-term solution, some orders last for years or even a lifetime. That means there is often ample time to run into some issues that require legal intervention. For instance, if you have experienced a permanent reduction in income, you might be able to modify the agreement. First, your post-divorce attorney must check the original agreement to make sure it does stipulate that you can modify alimony. Second, the attorney will review your change of circumstances to see if it meets the criteria. If so, your counsel will help you petition the court for the change. 

On the other hand, you might be pleased with the amount of alimony, but the other party refuses to pay. A post-divorce attorney can file a motion of civil or criminal contempt to urge the non-paying spouse into compliance. Read More

Where to Find an Effective Post-Divorce Lawyer in Miami

You may not have heard of a post-divorce attorney but when you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. Once you have reached an agreement about how things will be now that the divorce has been finalized, surely you no longer need the intervention and assistance of a lawyer? However, out there in the real world, some people will bend the rules. Some will break them. If they break the agreement you have in place, it can potentially put you in a difficult position.

Just when you thought all the negotiating was over and you could get on with your new life – your ex-partner throws you a curve ball. Maybe they’re not honoring the agreements you have in place for child support, parenting, or alimony. Perhaps your or your ex-partner’s circumstances have changed, and some renegotiation of the original agreements is necessary.

So, you need to find a lawyer again, and to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible, you need to find a lawyer who specializes in post-divorce in Miami.

Can I make Amendments to a Final Judgement?

Modifying Custody Agreements

Many parents think that parenting plans are set in stone, but that is not always the case. For example, assume that a parent develops a drug problem, creating an unsafe environment for the child. If so, a post-divorce attorney can petition the court to modify the parenting plan for the safety of the child. If your child is in immediate danger, contact law enforcement. Then, reach out to our firm to explore your legal options. Otherwise, you can contact our firm first to help you put a plan in place to protect your child from a future threat.

Enforcing Custody Agreements

Custody agreements are based on the best interest of the child. When possible, the court prefers to have both parents in the child’s life. Unfortunately, one parent might refuse to honor the agreement, cutting the other parent off from his or her child. If that happens, a post-divorce attorney can help you take enforcement action. Your attorney can file a targeted motion to hold the other parent in contempt of court. If successful, the court will intervene to ensure the parent upholds the agreement.
