Modification or Enforcement of Existing Orders

Once your divorce, separation or initial custody action is over, you will receive a final court order. This order may be subject to modification or enforcement upon entry.

Some Orders Need to be Changed or Enforced.

For example, if you have a court order from a divorce or custody action that includes a child support obligation, that child support order may be subject to modification if there is a substantial and continuing change in circumstances, including a change in either parent’s income, a change in the cost of daycare or health insurance, or a change in parenting time. Similarly, if you have a court order from a divorce or separation that includes a maintenance or spousal support obligation, that maintenance order may be subject to modification if there is a substantial and continuing change in circumstances, such as a change in either party’s income, expenses, or financial needs.

Another type of order that may be subject to modification is an order pertaining to children, including parenting time orders and decision-making orders. There are several factors that may warrant a modification to a parenting time or decision-making order, such as child endangerment, relocation of a parent, or change in a child’s or parent’s circumstances.

Other orders may be subject to enforcement, including child support orders, maintenance orders, parenting time orders, and decision-making orders. There are various ways in which to enforce an order, which may include filing a contempt of court action against a party who is not following a court order.
