ENFORCE MARITAL SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

When parties divorce, they memorialize the resolutions of their issues in a property settlement agreement.  If one party fails to comply with terms in the property settlement agreement, there are legal remedies for a spouse to enable the non-complying spouse into compliance.  Family Law Corp. can help you with these issues and review your agreement to determine the best course of action to take.

MODIFY CHILD SUPPORT OR ALIMONY

If a spouse is looking to change the terms of their current court ordered child support or alimony, the spouse has to prove a significant change in circumstances.  Some situations where a modification may be warranted are:

  • A new employment or increase in income by the party receiving support,
  • A loss of a job or reduced income of the party paying support,
  • A substantial increase in income of the party paying support,
  • Extraordinary medical expenses or a disability.

MODIFY CUSTODY

If a spouse is looking to change their current custody schedule, the spouse has to prove a significant change in circumstances and that the change is in the best interests of the child.  Some situations where a modification may be warranted are:

  • A change in a parent’s work schedule that affects the ability to care for the child,
  • An illness that affects the ability to care for the child,
  • A parental move,
  • Evidence of abuse.

CONTEMPT MOTIONS

If the other party does not obey a court order, you can ask the court for a contempt order by filing a Motion for Contempt.  If you ask the court for a contempt order, the court can make the other parent go to court to explain why he or she has not followed the court’s orders.  A party who violates a court order can be found guilty of contempt, and the Judge can order him or her to obey the order.  Some situations where a contempt motion may be warranted are:

  • A party is not paying child support in accordance with a child support order,
  • A party is not adhering the custody schedule in a custody order,
  • A party is not delivering documentation and discovery in accordance with a court order,
  • A party is in violation of an order of court.
