Post-Decree Modification And Enforcement Matters

We live in a changing economy. Many people find that the divorce settlement or judgment that once seemed reasonable is no longer working due to substantial changes that have occurred since the judge signed the original divorce decree. Some parents have found new job opportunities in a new area, while others may be facing financial strains due to the loss of a job. Children grow up fast, and in many cases, their needs substantially change over time. Custody and parenting-time or visitation schedules frequently become unworkable to serve the best interests of the children due to a variety of factors.

Diligent Modification Attorneys To Protect Your Parent-Child Relationship

If you have experienced significant changes since your decree was issued, it may be in your and your child's best interests for you to consult with a lawyer to obtain a post-judgment modification of your custody, parenting-time or child support order. The trusted lawyers at Allen Wellman McNew Harvey, LLP, are well-regarded for our diligent preparation and representation in all aspects of family law.

We frequently represent men and women in post-decree matters, including:

  • Child support modifications
  • Custody and parenting-time modifications
  • Child support and custody order enforcement
  • Parental relocation

In any post-decree custody modification proceeding, the court will review the facts and circumstances in the best interests of the child. In today's mobile economy, relocation matters are common. These disputes are complex. It is vital that you retain the services of a trial lawyer who knows how to prepare a case. When a custodial parent proposes to move, he or she must show that the relocation is in good faith and for a legitimate reason. The law then places the burden on the opposing party to prove that the move would not serve the child's best interests.
