Post Judgment Modifications
After the Divorce — Then What?
Reconsideration/Appeal - If the Court failed to properly apply the law in your case a Motion to Reconsider or an Appeal may be necessary.
Modification - Even though your divorce is final any order pertaining to a child, such as custody visitation and child support may be modified.
Enforcement - If the opposing party in your case fails to act as ordered you can petition the Court to have them found in contempt and punished through the payment of attorney's fees and sometimes even jail time
