Changing And Modifying Divorce Orders
Sometimes, after a decision has been made by a court ruling in a divorce proceeding regarding child custody and visitation orders, child support and spousal support, and distribution and division of assets, circumstances may change to the point where a post-judgment enforcement or modification order is necessary.
At Laraia & Whitty, P.C. in Wheaton, Illinois, we work with many different clients in DuPage County, Kane County, Will County, Cook County, Kendall County and the greater Chicago area who need help with modifying or enforcing a court order. We understand that economic situations may change causing job loss, resulting in the loss of medical benefits, or not being able to care for a child and make scheduled child support payments. In certain matters, a substantial change in circumstances can provide a person with the ability to modify or change the existing court order or judgment.
Failing to follow court-ordered divorce settlement agreements can result in contempt of court and actions taken against you, such as wage garnishment, being fined, or even being incarcerated. Contact our law firm to speak with our experienced post-judgment enforcement and modification attorneys if you are unsure about how to proceed in making changes to your divorce settlement.
