Post Judgment Action in NY

Contact Us Today!

Divorces are complex legal matters and most of the time, once the couple has finalized their divorce, they just want to move on with their life. The unfortunate reality is that even though the two former spouses may never want anything to do with each other again after the divorce, they may find themselves back in court years down the road battling over another matter. There are a number of different reasons that a person may have to take post-judgment action against their former spouse a significant amount of time after the divorce has been finalized.

Modification of an Order

One of the reasons that a divorced couple may find themselves in court after the divorce is when one party wants to modify one of the matters of the divorce agreement. When circumstances change and the original order is no longer effective, one party may request that the court modifies it to better suit the current situation. This may apply to situations such as child custody, visitation, alimony, among other things.

Enforcing a Court Order

In some situations, one of the former spouses may be ignoring the court’s original order and the other spouse may want to hold them accountable. Like modifications, this may apply to matters such as spousal support, child support, child custody, visitation, and more. If a party continuously ignores a court order, they may be subject to wage garnishing and other sanctions.

If you have questions about either modifying a court order or trying to enforce a court order, contact an experienced attorney today for quality legal assistance.

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!

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...
