Child support and alimony / spousal maintenance agreements under certain circumstances can be changed and amended. Courts understand that circumstances change after a divorce. For this reason, a process of modification is available, so families can amend the terms of child and spousal support. Contact an attorney who knows about modifications and terminations and can see you safely guide you through the legal obstacle.
Effective Enforcement Solutions
This happens very often in the areas of child support, visitation rights, spousal maintenance (alimony) and other settlement agreements. When Parent “A” disobeys the terms of a court order, Parent “B” may petition the court to declare Parent “A” to be in contempt.
At this point the court has the power to take painful actions:
~Garnish Parent “A”s paycheck, or tax refunds
~Restrict rights previously granted to Parent “A” (such as custody and visitation)
~To order Parent “A” to jail
Legally Terminate Support Agreements
The most common reason spousal maintenance is terminated is that the payee is now living with a partner (married or living as if they are married). The courts consider numerous reasons for termination of maintenance, contact us to learn more.
