Modification Of Agreements And Court Orders
Some changes cannot be anticipated upon the signing of an agreement or an order of the court. If there is a major change in a client’s life, the client may be unable to comply with provisions of the divorce decree and will need to file a request with the court to modify the order or judgment.
Child support and parenting plans may have to be modified due to loss of employment, an increase in one party’s income or a change in the needs of a child. However, to enforce a modification the change must have been ordered by the Court. A modification that is made but for which there is no court approval could result in a finding of contempt by the court. Such a finding could result in serious consequences for the party that modified their behavior without the agreement of the other party or an order of modification from the Court.
Attorney Cotler will attempt to negotiate a modification so that a full hearing is unnecessary. One of the more costly factors in a legal action is the time you spend waiting in court for your case to be heard. Some aspects of a judgment may only be modified if there has been a substantial change in your circumstances. COTLER LAW LLC can assist you with a various modifications of orders.
