Morris County NJ Lawyers - Family Law Attorneys Morristown

Post-Judgment Enforcement and Modification

Enforcing or Modifying an Award Following Your Divorce

Morristown – Randolph – Chatham – Denville – Northern New Jersey

There are a number of issues that can arise after a divorce has been completed. Frequently, one party needs to enforce the terms of their Property Settlement Agreement or a previous Court Order. Our family law attorneys first attempt to resolve an enforcement issue prior to engaging in litigation. We then continue to work with you to secure the appropriate enforcement order from the Court.

A change in circumstances may also occur causing one party to request to modify a previous Order or Property Settlement Agreement. By way of example, a party may need to increase or reduce a support obligation based upon retirement, remarriage, change in employment status, or disability. Here, too, our family law attorneys first attempt to resolve the issue before litigating.

We can provide the analysis, advocacy and aggressive representation needed to modify, enforce or terminate your current order or agreement. Call 973-813-7667 or contact us online to schedule an appointment to discuss your specific situation.

The issues we handle include:

College Expenses

In recent years, a major post-judgment issue has become a parent’s obligation to contribute toward college. New Jersey is in the forefront of requiring both parents to contribute toward the costs of post-secondary education. The Court currently applies a 14-factor test in the allocation of these expenses to each party.
