What you can expect from your Divorce and Family Law Attorney – After Divorce
Contempt and Enforcement
If your former spouse is not following your Marital Settlement Agreement or court order, a contempt action can be filed with the court. If found in contempt, the court may coerce your former spouse to comply by ordering sanctions. If you did not receive the property that was distributed to you in your Marital Settlement Agreement or by court order, an enforcement action can be filed with the court.
If circumstances have changed since you signed your Marital Settlement Agreement or since the court entered its order, a modification action can be filed with the court.
If you have custody of your child or shared parenting time, and you need to move more than 50 miles from your current home, you will need to file a relocation action with the court. There are relocation factors that the court will apply to determine whether it is in the childrens’ best interests
