We Can Help You Modify Existing Divorce Agreements And Orders
A divorce agreement or order sets out all terms of your divorce or legal matter regardless of whether it was obtained by court order or achieved through out-of-court negotiation and settlement. Terms of divorce include property division, debt division, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. These agreements may no longer be appropriate as life and circumstances change and new facts emerge.
If both parties recognize that modifying the agreement is in their family’s best interests, then the terms of the agreement can be renegotiated. However, if one party is unwilling to agree to change the agreement or order, it is necessary to seek the court’s intervention.
At Venzon Law Firm PC, our lawyers are experienced negotiators and litigators. We strive to reach a beneficial divorce agreement, settlement or order for our clients that provides them with the best terms possible. As a team, we work together to modify existing divorce judgments or agreements either through negotiation or through litigation.
Protecting Your Rights In Your Divorce Agreement
A divorce judgment or agreement contains the terms of your divorce. Each party’s rights and responsibilities regarding property, money, child custody, visitation, and child and spousal support should be clearly defined. Venzon Law Firm PC makes sure our clients get the benefits guaranteed to them in their divorce agreement.
If your ex-spouse or partner violated the terms of your divorce agreement our firm can help. We will initiate enforcement by contacting your former spouse or partner and asking them to follow the terms under the agreement. If communication by an amicable attempt is not successful in enforcing the agreement or order, we will continue our efforts by applying to the court for help and enforcement.
