Post Divorce Disputes - New Jersey Divorce Attorney
Foreman Law has extensive experience in handling post-divorce disputes, which are sometimes inevitable, even after successful divorce settlements are reached. This is often the result of the complexity of life, and changing circumstances, which include, but are not restricted to:
- Terms of the initial divorce no longer reflecting the reality of the family’s life
- Job loss, or a change in job status
- One party’s desire to move
- Issues of religious upbringing
- A desire to change parenting time and/or responsibilities
- Any change in needs
Post-divorce disputes, commonly referred to as post-judgment or post-decree matters, include enforcement of divorce judgments and orders as well as modifications of those judgments. Enforcement actions may become necessary when circumstances, like the aforementioned above, cause a party to be late in paying support, create problems with visitation, or do not fulfill a duty imposed by the court or agreed to in a settlement agreement.
It’s always my hope that these situations can be resolved amicably. But at the end of the day, if your former spouse is not following the final judgment or settlement agreement regarding property settlement terms, custody or support, I am here to help! In legal terms: Together, we will seek enforcement through the court by filing a post-judgment motion for enforcement. The court will then compel the non-complying party to abide by the terms of the final judgment or agreement. If the party doesn’t follow the terms of the agreement, the court can issue a contempt order against the non-complying party. It can also order the non-complying party to pay your court costs.
