Phoenix Child Support Modification Lawyer
Arizona Parenting Time Lawyer
While a good divorce decree anticipates most eventualities that could occur with relation to spousal support, child custody, parenting time and visitation and child support, even the best lawyer cannot predict the future. That is why the law allows for divorce modifications.
What happens when something in your life or in the life of your former spouse significantly changes? What happens when new information comes to light that was not available during the divorce? For times like these, you need a lawyer to pursue a post-divorce modification.
At the law office of Rebecca L. Owen, PLLC, we assist clients in seeking to modify their divorces. Generally, for a post-divorce modification to occur, there must have been a significant change in the life circumstances of one or the other of the former spouses.
- Is one spouse seeking to relocate to another state?
- Has there been a significant loss or increase in income?
- Has the custodial parent suffered a serious illness and can no longer care for the children as the primary parent?
- Has new financial information come to light about the former spouse who is paying spousal support (alimony)?
Returning to court is not an easy process and it can re-open old, painful wounds. Attorney Rebecca L. Owen can support you through this troubling process. You have the right to seek a modification, and we can help you through the process.
Divorce Decree Enforcement
A former spouse may return to court to seek enforcement of a divorce decree for reasons that include: the primary parent is not letting the other parent exercise their parenting time rights or the former spouse is not paying child support.
Please note that if you are in the process of a divorce, including a military divorce, if you do not ask for spousal support at the time of your divorce, you waive your right to it in the future.
