What Is the Goal of a Modification?
Family Law modifications are revisions or alterations to existing court orders pertaining to family law matters. These modifications are typically required when a significant and lasting change occurs in the life of one or both parties involved, altering the appropriateness or feasibility of the original order. It's important to understand that the change necessitating a modification must be substantial and enduring; minor or temporary changes are usually insufficient grounds for a court order modification.
Here are some common circumstances when someone may need a modification:
- A significant increase or decrease in either party's income
- Job loss or gain of employment
- Relocation of a parent
- Changes in the child's needs, including educational or healthcare requirements
- Changes in the custodial parent's lifestyle that may affect the child's wellbeing
While these events can be distressing, they don't have to be overwhelming. Our team is here to help guide you through each step, ensuring that any modifications are in the best interests of you and your family.
What Are Family Law Enforcement Actions?
Family law enforcement refers to the legal actions taken to ensure compliance with a court order related to family law matters. This process comes into play when one party does not adhere to the obligations set forth in the order, such as refusing to pay alimony or not following a child custody schedule.
Examples of circumstances that might warrant enforcement include:
- Non-payment of child support or spousal support
- Interference with visitation or custody rights
- Failure to divide marital property as dictated by the court order
- Non-compliance with court-ordered parental responsibilities or restrictions
The court has several remedies at its disposal for enforcing family law orders. These include wage garnishments, property liens, and even holding someone in contempt of court. The primary goal of these measures is to ensure that the non-compliant party fulfills their legal obligations and that the court order is adhered to.
Remember, it's always best to seek legal counsel when dealing with matters of family law enforcement. Our team at Bez Law Firm, P.C., can provide the support and representation you need during this challenging time.
