Suffolk County Post-Judgment Attorney

Post-Divorce Attorney in Bohemia, NY

When a divorce is complete, orders handed down by the court must be followed. It is imperative that you do as the court mandates or you could face further legal issues. Though a court makes decisions in an equitable fashion, they cannot see into the future. Courts understand their limitations to make decisions on the facts in front of them and are open to requests for modifications. Furthermore, courts are available to help if one party ignores an order and the other needs help to enforce it. The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel has over 25 years of experience helping clients through post-judgment legal actions. If you need quality legal support to guide you through the request for a modification or enforcement of a court order, contact The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, P.C. for a consultation to discuss your legal matter. We understand how important post-judgment actions can be and we will work tirelessly to help you come to a positive conclusion.



New York courts are open to hearing requests for modification of a court order, including child support, child custody, spousal maintenance, and other matrimonial matters. The legal standard for a court to grant a request for modification is high. A person must establish an unforeseen, ongoing, and substantial change in circumstances that overwhelmingly convinces the court to change the order. Some factors that can lead to a change in spousal maintenance includes illness, loss of job, a change in dependency, and more. Child support can change because of a change in the custody arrangement, income, and unexpected loss of employment. Child custody can change if there is a sudden change in work schedule, health conditions of the parents or child, an exposure to dangerous third parties, and more. It is important to retain quality legal support through this process.


When a party does not follow a court order, they can be held accountable for their actions. If a party needs help because the other ex-spouse is not following the direction of the court, it is important to consult an attorney as soon as possible. Our firm can help you file an enforcement order, also known as a violation petition, asking the court to intervene. In most situations, the party that needs to request assistance to enforce a court order, the party who is violating the order will be responsible for the court fees. When it comes to financial issues, like spousal maintenance and child support, there are many ways in which the court can help, including wage garnishing. When a child custody arrangement is being violated, the court can change the structure or impose sanctions on the parent. In some cases, a court even decides to hold the party in contempt of court.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
