After a divorce is finalized, the orders that are issued must be followed closely. If a change needs to be made post-dissolution, it must go through the courts in order for the new order to be enforceable. If you are seeking the modification of a child support, child custody or other family court order, a knowledgeable family law attorney can provide the assistance you need.
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Werner, P.C. in Colorado Springs, I offer my family law clients skilled representation in modification cases. As an experienced modification and enforcement lawyer, I understand the processes through which these actions can be accomplished. I advocate for my clients, whether they are the ones seeking the modification or attempting to prevent the changing of the standing order.Child Custody and Visitation Modification
Parents often want their custody and visitation arrangements modified in order to spend more time with their children. Some may just need different days or hours. Regardless, the courts must approve of the modification. I handle all types of child custody modification, including relocation when a parent wishes to move out of state.Modification of Child Support
When a parent experiences the drastic change in circumstances, such as the loss of a job or new marriage, a child support order may need to be modified in order to reflect these new changes. I am able to help clients seek modifications to child support, whether it is an increase or decrease in support payments. I also handle the enforcement of standing support orders.Alimony and Spousal Support Modification
In addition to handling the modification of child support and child custody issues, I also can represent clients who are in need of a modification to an existing alimony order. There are certain situations, such as the subsequent marriage of the spouse who is receiving spousal support, that require a modification or end to the order.
