Post-Judgment & Post-Divorce Litigation
Post divorce litigation takes place after the granting of a divorce, dissolution of marriage, or legal separation. This litigation, also referred to as post decree or post judgment litigation, deals with the enforcement or modification of judgments made in divorce proceedings.
“Child custody, child support and spousal support can be modified after divorce.”
Reasons for Post Divorce Litigation
Sometimes one party determines that the other has violated a prior order of the court and files a motion to have the order enforced. Other issues such as child custody, child support, and spousal support (alimony) may be modified after the divorce is final.
If circumstances change from the time of the original child or spousal support award, it may be modified by post-decree motion. This generally will happen if there has been a significant change in the income of one of the parties.
