When a judgment is made in a couple’s divorce, many people feel a level of relief as they move toward a life of independence. Unfortunately, a number of issues can arise post-divorce that can lead to complications with your former-spouse. Whether your former spouse is failing to pay child support payments in full or on time or one party is seeking a post-judgment modification to the child custody or support agreement, you need to take the situation seriously. If you are facing post-divorce complications, speak with a compassionate and experienced divorce attorney regarding your options.
Post-Divorce Issues Pertaining to Children
When it comes to parenting time and responsibilities, it is not uncommon for a parent to violate the court-ordered agreement. The most common violations include consistently running late to drop off or pick up children, preventing a non-custodial parent from visiting the child during agreed-upon visitation times, and overstepping legal custody agreements by making unilateral decisions on the child’s schooling or extra-curricular engagements. If you begin to notice a trend of violations, begin documenting the details surrounding the violations. If the violations continue, it is time to speak with your attorney. In serious cases, your attorney may pursue a modification to the original custody agreement.
