What Will Life After Divorce Be Like?

Upon issuance of the divorce decree, the judge will also issue orders covering child custody and visitation, child support, property division and spousal support. These orders will stay in place until the court modifies them by issuing new orders.

If conditions have changed after your divorce, you or your former spouse can seek to modify family law orders. Courts routinely grant such requests, though there can be complicating factors that require investigation and significant legal efforts to achieve.

Modifying Family Law Orders

Watkins & Letofsky, LLP, is a team of experienced family law attorneys with offices in Santa Ana and Las Vegas. We can assist you in these matters:

Routine child support modifications — If the income of a parent has changed significantly, custody arrangements have changed or the needs of a child have changed, we can represent you. In many cases, we can obtain child support modifications quickly and efficiently, for a reasonable fee. We can also represent you if you wish to contest a proposed child support modification.

Special child support situations — When a parent attempts to hide income for the purposes of minimizing support or avoid his or her obligations, we can represent you. If necessary, we can retain the services of a forensic accountant who can impute income in order to determine the true earnings of a parent.

Child custody and parenting time — In some cases, we can negotiate with the other parent to achieve workable custody and parenting time arrangements that meet the needs of the child and the parents. We can then seek the approval of the court that will issue a new order. Other child custody modification petitions, such as a proposed child relocation, can require extensive litigation.

Spousal support — If the income of the payer or receiver has changed significantly, Watkins & Letofsky, LLP, can represent you.
