Modifications to Divorce Agreement, Enforcing a Divorce Decree
Child Support, Child Custody, Alimony
Although a final judgment has been entered, post-judgment issues of modification and enforcement often arise. Either party may bring a petition for an increase or decrease in the child support amount whenever the financial circumstances of either party have substantially changed and it is in the best interests of the child. For a modification of child support, child custody or alimony, there must be a substantial change in circumstances that was not contemplated at the time of entry of the final judgment and the change must be sufficient, material, involuntary and permanent. A parties’ property settlement is not subject to modification.
