Going Back to Court After Divorce

In many cases, the completion of a divorce or dissolution process can be a relieving experience. Unfortunately, in some situations, your legal issues may not be coming to an end just yet. With significant changes in lifestyle, a parenting plan or child support arrangement can quickly become obsolete. In other situations, it may be necessary to seek assistance from the court when your former spouse violates the terms of your parenting plan, support order or division of property order.

LPA, our Elyria, Ohio, divorce modification attorneys take great care to provide detailed and personalized support to clients throughout the area who need to return to court after a divorce or dissolution.

Detailed Modification Assistance

Following major changes in your life, including those relating to your income, your schedule or your living arrangements, it may be necessary to modify an existing parenting plan or child support order or to seek permission from the court to perform a parental relocation.
