Georgia Post-Divorce Modifications Attorney
Once your divorce has been finalized, it is time to begin looking at the future, prioritizing your own goals as well as those of your children. The change that accompanies the future sometimes calls for modifications of your divorce decree and the court orders setting forth your child custody, child support and alimony arrangements. For example, your children may require more expensive healthcare. You may have lost your job or been demoted and now face financial hardship. Your former spouse may have gotten a promotion or is now living with a new partner.
At the law firm of Deborah M. Lubin, P.C. in Atlanta, Georgia, we work with clients, seeking post-divorce modifications both to help you make changes that reflect your changing lifestyle. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our services.
What Factors Warrant Modification?
Modifications to existing orders may occur when there has been a significant change in either party’s income. The needs of children may also warrant a modification – healthcare costs, daycare or a change in residence. Child support, custody issues and visitation schedules may also require a modification. In any case, the burden of proving the need for modification rests upon the parent who is requesting it. At Deborah M. Lubin, P.C., we provide advice regarding the feasibility of a modification and how updates to Georgia statues can affect post-divorce issues.
Unfortunately, parents don’t always follow the orders outlined by the court at the time of the divorce. The custodial parent sometimes does not allow scheduled visitation with the noncustodial parent, the parent ordered to pay support stops for some reason. The goal of contempt proceedings is to make sure that the original terms of the order are enforced properly. At Deborah M. Lubin, P.C., we work hard to both represent people seeking to fairly enforce divorce orders and defend people who are facing unreasonable contempt actions. We represent clients in taking steps to ensure that in contempt issues, the party in contempt pays any unpaid support as well as interest, attorney fees and court costs.
Visitation matters often boil down to “he said, she said” situations and can be difficult to prove. In those scenarios, we provide the best possible support and advice to bring about resolution.
