Enforcing Marital Settlement Agreements

A marital settlement agreement, like any agreement, is only as good as the people entering into it. If your ex-spouse is not following through with the terms of your marital settlement agreement, we can take action to ensure that they ultimately meet the obligations. Our lawyers are experienced in handling contempt issues.

Post-divorce modifications

It is common for people's circumstances to change after a divorce. In order to reflect these changes, the terms of a divorce agreement may need to be modified. Child custody can be modified based on the best interests of children. Child support is modifiable as well based on a substantial change in circumstances, such as an increase or decrease of income for one or both parties.

Spousal support or APL is modifiable up until the time the divorce is finalized. Once divorce is final, alimony is usually not modifiable.

Whether a case of APL or spousal support, enforcement of child support or the handling of a different family law matter, the attorneys at Shemtob Law, P.C. have the experience and knowledge to assist you with these issues. Our many years of experience have provided us with insight on how a court will often rule in certain situations, and what direction a case may often take.
