Chandler Modification Lawyer
Our family law attorney with 20+ years experienced has served families in Chandler, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, and Scottsdale, and other cities in the Maricopa County for post-judgment modification and other family law matters
What to do when current circumstances have changed
Whether your divorce decree or child support order was originally entered in the Valley, elsewhere in Arizona, or in another state, you may later need to enforce or modify it. If you, your former spouse, or your child is a resident of Maricopa County or a nearby community, the attorneys of Shaffer Family Law can help you with post-judgment modification or enforcement of the terms of the original order.
Enforcement of a divorce decree may include seeking an Arizona court's help in requiring your former spouse to make spousal maintenance payments, to make child support payments, to return certain property to you, or to allow you to visit your children according to your custody and parenting time schedule.
What are the possible Post-judgment modifications?
Post-judgment modification of a divorce, custody or support order involves asking the court to change the terms of an original order because of a change in circumstances. For example, you may seek modification of a child support order because your income has changed. You may seek modification of child custody or visitation orders for many reasons, including because you or your ex plans to move or because you are concerned about your child's safety with the other parent.
