Post-Dissolution Issues in Indianapolis Divorce
Need a lawyer to modify or enforce a divorce decree?
Bowen & Associates, LLC, we assist clients not only with actions involved in getting a divorce
but also with issues that frequently arise in the months and years following
the day when you receive your decree of dissolution of marriage. No matter
how hard you work for divorce terms that you think will benefit you in
the long term, there is no way to predict what will happen after your
divorce is finalized.
Circumstances change, and you may end up being forced to live with court
orders that simply do not work for you. Additionally, your ex-spouse may
start violating the terms of the orders, making it necessary for you to
bring the matter before a judge for enforcement. Whatever the issue, we
are ready to help you.
How to Modify a Court Order
When there has been a substantial change in circumstances following your
divorce, it may be possible to obtain a post-dissolution modification
of the terms you received for:
For example, you may have lost your job and can no longer keep up with
your obligation to pay child support. Perhaps you have learned that your
former spouse has gotten a pay raise and can now afford to pay more support.
Custody and visitation modifications are often necessary when one of the
parents is planning to move to another state or when concerns over possible
abuse prompt one parent to seek to deny visitation with the other parent.
How to Enforce a Court Order
In the event that your ex-spouse is no longer complying with the terms
of the court orders - or is purposefully violating the orders - our divorce
lawyers may be able to help you rectify the situation by representing
you in court with a request for enforcement. Depending on the circumstances,
the court may compel your ex-spouse to comply through such incentivized
- a driver's license suspension
- wage garnishment
You should not be forced to struggle and argue to get your former spouse
to live up to his or her obligations. Let us fight for you and help you
get what you deserve.
