Judgments, Marital Settlement Agreements, and Parenting Agreements will establish the terms of ongoing interactions between former spouses, including arrangements for child custody, child support, maintenance, and the division of property. People’s lives, however, inevitably change, and plans established at the time of divorce may not be feasible years later. In other circumstances, ex-spouses exhibit the same non-cooperative or manipulative behavior as they did during the marriage and regularly violate the terms of these agreements and judgments.
The Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group helps clients seek post-divorce modifications that reflect major lifestyle changes for ex-spouses, parents, and children, such as relocation, remarriage, illness, and financial difficulties. For those having trouble with an ex-spouse following the rules, we can help to establish new boundaries and enforce the terms that already exist in their agreements.
Before a divorce can be finalized, issues such as child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal maintenance (“alimony”) need to be resolved. The law understands, however, that life moves forward, often in directions unforeseen at the time of divorce. When a significant or “substantial change” in circumstances affects the operability of a custody or support arrangement, either party to a divorce may seek a modification of the court order. Possible examples of a such change in circumstances may include:
Orders related to a divorce or custody arrangement must be followed. Unfortunately, all too often, people do not always abide by the terms of court orders and custody agreements. Illinois law provides remedies to enforce judgments, orders, and agreements, such as withholding income, placing liens on property, driver’s license suspension, and even jail.
If you need to pursue the modification or enforcement of a court order after divorce, please contact the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group in Chicago to request a consultation. We will take the time to understand your unique circumstances and determine the best way to present your case so you can achieve the result you want.
