Sometimes after a divorce issues arise that need further negotiation or litigation. Circumstances change and an agreement that once worked may need to be modified or provisions may need to be enforced. Some post-judgment matters or modification of orders that may require changes include monetary child support, division of property, or child custody.
Common post-judgment matters that may require modification are child custody and support. Changes in circumstances, such as financial abilities, location, life changes, marriage, and otherwise can be grounds to modify a judgment or agreement. Changes may also be in regards to a child’s health, education, and welfare. Greenblatt Law knows that circumstances can change quickly and we’re ready to counsel you on your options.
