Post Divorce Actions
Fairfax Post-Divorce Action Lawyers
Modification & Enforcement of Custody, Visitation, & Support
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 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:
- Modification of child custody arrangements
- Modification of visitation (parenting) schedules
- Modification of child support obligations and spousal support payments (including terminations)
- Contested custodial parent relocations (within Virginia or to another jurisdiction)
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 attorneys’ ability to work well with opposing counsel help us achieve cost-effective — yet favorable — out-of-court solutions. That said, our lawyers are also experienced in the courtroom, and we are fully prepared to litigate these issues vigorously when necessary.
Enforcement of Divorce Agreements & Court Orders
If your former spouse has not been fulfilling the obligations they assumed as part of your divorce settlement or the obligations set out in a court order, our 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).
