Modification & Enforcement

child support modification attorneyAssisting Men and Women Seeking Modification & Enforcement of Court Orders in Southern California Help in Changing Times

Needs and circumstances change. What was once a fair divorce, custody r support order may now be unworkable. Economic downturns or unexpected needs may require a formal modification to orders of child support or spousal support (alimony).

Attitudes also change. The opposing party may have agreed to pay support, sign over a deed, or sell the house and split the proceeds, but is now refusing to fulfill his or her obligations. Obtaining legal enforcement of these orders may be the only way to ensure that your rights are protected and that the opposing party complies.

At the Law Office of Ann A. Thomson in Orange County, Ann helps men and women in Southern California seek modification or enforcement of court orders governing all aspects of divorce, including:

  • Child support: increasing or decreasing support based on changing ability to pay as well as enforcing child support or punishing nonpayment through the contempt process
  • Child custody and visitation: seeking a modification in cases where one parent moves away or relocates out of state as well as enforcing parental rights to custody and visitation
  • Spousal support (alimony): modifications to spousal support (alimony) when ability to pay changes due to job loss or illness
  • Property division: enforcing orders and forcing the other party to sign a deed, make equalization payments on the ordered sale of a house, etc.
