Ohio Spousal and Child Support Modifications/Enforcements Attorneys
A Cincinnati Family Law Firm
Life keeps going after divorce. And the decrees that once applied to the divorced spouses and their children may not apply when times have changed and years have passed.
Divorce decrees — including child support, child custody, and spousal support — can be changed on an ongoing basis. The court retains jurisdiction in these matters, recognizing that circumstances change.
Divorce decrees can also be enforced. If you are struggling financially because child support payments are not being made, or if visitation rights are being violated, the court order that applies may be enforceable.
Contact a divorce lawyer from the law office of King, Koligian & Associates, LLC, in Montgomery, Ohio. We can explain how a modification or enforcement can benefit you.
There are a number of circumstances that may necessitate the modification of a court order:
- Child support — A change in the needs of the child, a change in parent's income or ability to pay, and other changes in circumstance
- Child custody — A change in the needs of the child, a medical condition, a change in parent's schedule, relocation, and other changes in circumstance
- Spousal support (alimony) — A change in income of the payer or the receiver, a change in financial circumstance, health issues, and other changes in circumstance
Contact our law firm for more information about additional changes in circumstance that may apply.
Dealing with an individual who fails to honor child support, spousal support, or visitation agreements can be emotionally and financially taxing. However, legal options do exist for people in this situation.
A court order can be enforced. For certain obligations, such as child support, wage garnishments and other enforcement mechanisms may be applied. Additional options apply for other court decrees. Additionally, when an individual fails to meet court-ordered obligations, he or she may be held in contempt of court. Talk to a lawyer to determine your individual legal options.
