Overview: Post-Divorce Matters

Post-divorce matters encompass the legal issues and challenges that may arise after the completion of the divorce process. While divorce marks the end of a marriage, it does not necessarily mean the end of legal proceedings or disputes between former spouses. Post-divorce matters may include modifications to existing court orders, enforcement of court orders, and addressing new issues that arise after the divorce, such as parental relocation or changes in financial circumstances.


Even after the divorce is finalized, there may be ongoing legal matters and challenges that require attention. Here are some common post-divorce matters:

  1. Modifications to Court Orders: Circumstances may change after the divorce, requiring modifications to existing court orders regarding child custody, visitation, child support, property division or spousal support. Common reasons for seeking modifications include changes in income, employment status, health issues, or relocation.
  2. Enforcement of Court Orders: If a former spouse fails to comply with the terms of a court order, such as failing to pay child support or violating visitation rights, enforcement measures may be necessary. This may involve seeking enforcement through the court, such as wage garnishment, property liens, or contempt proceedings.
  3. Parental Relocation: If one parent wishes to relocate with the children after the divorce, they may need to seek court approval for the relocation. Relocation cases can be complex and may require demonstrating that the move is in the best interests of the children and does not negatively impact the other parent’s relationship with the children.
  4. Changes in Financial Circumstances: Changes in financial circumstances, such as job loss, promotion, or significant changes in income, may impact child support or spousal support obligations. In such cases, either party may seek modifications to support orders to reflect the new financial realities.
  5. Parenting Plan Modifications: As children grow older or their needs change, modifications to parenting plans may be necessary to accommodate their evolving needs and schedules. This may include adjustments to custody arrangements, visitation schedules, or decision-making authority.
