Although divorce marks the permanent end of the legal relationship of Husband and Wife, when minor children are involved, or when an order for alimony/spousal support has been issued, the relationship between the spouses will continue after the final decree.
Even after a divorce decree is entered, issues related to the children, including child support and the modification or termination of spousal support, may arise. When this occurs, Ohio family law attorney John Heilbrun can assist you with such post-decree disagreements.
Common Post-Decree Problems
Common problems people face after the finalization of their divorce include:
- Employment or income changes necessitating a change in child or spousal support
- Changes in the location of residence of either parent (relocation issues)
- Changes in the desires or needs of the children
- An inability of the parents to work together requiring a modification of the Shared Parenting Plan
- The failure of one party to comply with obligations set forth under the terms of the Court Decree (contempt proceedings)
Life is not static. The needs and desires of everyone involved in the ending of a marriage, including minor children, shall continue to change with age and circumstances. When such changes occur, it is not uncommon for former spouses to find that they are unable to resolve these issues without the assistance of an attorney. With the help of an experienced and compassionate family lawyer like John Heilbrun, these issues can be effectively addressed and resolved.
