After a divorce judgment is entered, circumstances can change, requiring a modification of the terms of your divorce or you may need assistance enforcing the terms of your divorce judgment. For example, if you lose your job, you may need to seek a modification of your alimony and child support obligations. Or you may be facing an application filed by your ex-spouse seeking to modify his or her financial obligations. Perhaps you or your ex-spouse desire an alteration to custody and parenting time or one of you seeks to relocate your residence. Each of these issues is handled by filing a motion for modification.
If you are seeking to enforce the terms of your divorce judgment, Tonneman & Connors, LLC is able to assist you in filing a motion to enforce. These motions can arise in the circumstances of seeking contribution to college expenses for your children or simple seeking to enforce the financial obligations of your ex-spouse. If your ex-spouse is interfering with your parenting time or your custody rights, a motion to enforce is also appropriate. If your divorce judgment provides for alimony to terminate or suspend due to an ex-spouse’s remarriage or cohabitation, you will need to file a motion to enforce if your ex-spouse will not consent to the termination or suspension of your alimony.
Often, these applications lead to court-ordered obligations to participate in alternative dispute resolution or a plenary hearing, where testimony is taken.
