When a Final Judgment or Final Order is entered which requires ongoing obligations into the future, the parties may need to return to court when a change in circumstances occurs. Similarly, if one party fails to comply with the ongoing obligations, there may be a need to return to court to enforce an existing order or judgment. If you need to request a modification or enforce a court order, it is important to have experienced legal guidance. The attorneys at Paone Zaleski & Murphy are here to help. Contact our post-judgment modification attorneys for help today.
Ongoing obligations, such as child support and alimony may have to be modified over time due to a change in circumstances. This change can be brought about due to the loss of employment, a serious medical condition, and other factors. Whether a party is entitled to a modification depends upon the change in circumstances alleged.
Many parties are surprised to learn that a Final Judgment of Divorce or Settlement Agreement may be modified by a change in circumstances. Whether the change justifies modification or not is a serious legal matter that deserves the attention of an experienced attorney who is ready to fight for you. Contact Paone Zaleski & Murphy if you require strong legal representation.
As previously mentioned, a court order is legally binding. When one individual does not follow the order, he or she could be held accountable. The court will make a decision as to how to enforce the order. If a person continues to violate an order, the court may issue a punishment as severe as incarceration.
