Post Divorce Modification

"Just because your divorce is over does not mean that you will not have legal problems with your ex-spouse."

If you have already dissolved your marriage but seek to hire an experienced post divorce modification attorney, Widrig Law PLLC can help. We are experienced divorce modification lawyers or sometimes known as post judgment attorneys. Just because your divorce is over does not mean that you will not have legal problems with your ex-spouse. The most common post divorce matters including enforcement actions and modification of current court orders.

Contempt of Court

If a party fails to obey a Court Order, something must be done to force the person to comply with the Court Order. Sometimes it is necessary to file a Contempt Petition seeking to have the person punished for not doing as the court ordered. The punishment can be incarceration in jail unless and until they comply with the Courts Order.

A typical approach in an enforcement proceeding would be first sending a letter requesting that a party comply with the Court Order. If the party still refuses to comply, a Petition for Contempt may be filed and if the party still refuses to comply, a hearing is typically scheduled and the Court determines whether the party refusing to comply should be jailed until they comply. Contact the Post Divorce Attorneys at the law office of Widrig Law PLLC for more details on your post divorce litigation.

Modification of court orders (child support/ Alimony)

The most common provisions of Court Orders that people seek to modify involve child support, child custody/visitation, and alimony.

In most circumstances, in order to modify child custody you must show that there has been “a substantial and material change in the circumstances” since the last Order was entered by the Court. The change can be either to you or to the other party, and can include almost anything, including losing a job, retiring, having other children, getting remarried, being arrested/convicted, etc. contact the Child Custody Modification Attorney at Widrig Law PLLC for a consultation to see if your situation is a substantial and material change according to the law.
