At Wexell Milman, we help our clients obtain post-divorce modifications to the terms of their custody, visitation, and support agreements. Our practice is focused primarily on family law and divorce-related matters, and we have been providing these services to clients in Fairfax County and the surrounding jurisdictions of Northern Virginia since 1981.
Virginia’s courts recognize that as lives, circumstances, and needs change, some of the terms of a divorce settlement and divorce-related court orders may also need to change. Specifically, post-divorce actions regarding minor children, or modifiable spousal support.
Our experience with post-divorce actions and post-separation actions includes:
The prerequisite that must be met for a Court to approve a requested modification in Virginia is a material change in the circumstances of the person seeking the adjustment, and a court order or agreement permitting a modification. We represent clients seeking post-divorce modifications as well as those seeking to preserve the status quo.
The combination of hard work, thorough preparation, and our family law attorneys’ ability to work well with opposing counsel help us achieve cost-effective – yet favorable – out-of-court solutions to these issues. That said, our divorce lawyers are also experienced in the courtroom, and we are fully prepared to litigate these issues vigorously when necessary.
If your former spouse has not been fulfilling obligations they assumed as part of your divorce settlement or the obligations set out in a court order, our divorce lawyers can pursue a number of options for remedying the situation on your behalf, including wage garnishment, actions to enforce, breach of contract claims, and contempt of court proceedings (“show cause” actions).
