Grunyk & Associates, P.C. can assist in a variety of post divorce issues. If an issue has arisen since your divorce judgment was entered, you may need assistance with the following:
Whether the issues in your divorce are settled by you and your spouse or are decided by a judge, some things in your judgment can be modified (changed) by a judge after a hearing. Usually, child support, alimony, child custody, and child visitation can be modified, but only if one of you can show that there has been a substantial and continuous change in circumstances. Examples of a change of circumstances are losing your job, inheriting substantial sums of money, or remarriage. Grounds to change child custody orders can include someone moving away, or the needs of the children changing as they grow older.
If you or your spouse disobeys an order that the court makes in your divorce judgment, there are ways to enforce those orders. Examples of disobedience of an order are failure to pay support, failure to turn over property that was awarded and refusal to allow the visitation that was ordered.
Orders to pay money can be enforced by garnishing wages or bank accounts or by having the sheriff seize and sell property belonging to the person who hasn't paid. Orders for support, to turn over property and for child visitation can usually be enforced by contempt of court proceedings.
If your spouse is not following the divorce judgment entered, you should contact a lawyer at Grunyk & Associates, P.C.
