We also handle enforcement actions. When one party fails to comply with the court order, we help hold him or her in contempt of court.
Contact our family law attorneys today to discuss your separation or divorce decree modification or enforcement needs in a free consultation.
Modification of Existing Orders
Substantial changes in circumstances may warrant the modification of an existing court order. We work with clients who need assistance with:
- Child support modification: Losing a job, getting remarried, aging children, and caring for health needs are all reasons to modify and existing child support order. We can help make a case for the modification based on new financial circumstances.
- Child custody modification: We represent either parent in a child custody modification matter. We handle modifications due to parental relocation and move-away, child requests to live with a different parent, substantial changes in work and school schedules, and other reasons.
- Spousal support (alimony) modification: Our divorce decree modification lawyers help ensure that spousal support payments accurately reflect the financial situation of both parties. If one party has a significant change in income, or if a party remarries, the support may need to be adjusted.
At Bamieh & Erickson, PLC, we also handle enforcement actions for clients who are not receiving the support they are entitled to and for clients whose former partner is not following the child custody and parenting plan. California divorce decrees are enforceable by contempt of court, which can serve as a powerful tool in obtaining compliance with child support and spousal support orders.
