Buffalo Court Order Modification & Enforcement

Can I change my court order after a divorce in Buffalo?

A divorce decree is a final court order that outlines all areas of your specific situation. Everything from your division of assets, child support, custody arrangements and maintenance can be addressed on your final divorce decree. While these orders are permanent and cannot be completely eliminated, you can make modifications to these orders by working with my firm, The Law Office of Charles A. Messina.

How to Modify a Divorce Decree

Commonly, a modification needs to be made to a divorce decree because of an unexpected life change. Where you were when the divorce was finalized may not be where you are now because your financial, social, and medical circumstances may have changed. Most people also relocate after a divorce due to remarriage or job changes. Child custody arrangements, support, and alimony orders can all be created on a temporary or permanent basis.

In order to obtain a modification, you must file a request with the court. I can help you understand the changes that are being requested and file the necessary paperwork to ensure that your modification is accepted in a timely manner.

Enforcing Court Orders in New York

Are you seeking to enforce a court order? Because these orders are final and binding by the court, failing to comply with them can cause significant legal complications. If a spouse is non-compliant, a family lawyer can assist you in enforcing these court orders. Depending on the circumstance, each case may vary, but it is always important that you are aware that failure to adhere to the guidelines listed in a court order can lead to severe consequences.

If a protective order is being violated, you need to immediately contact law enforcement to ensure safety of you and your family. If a civil order is being violated, you need to gather all necessary evidence pertaining to your case and contact a divorce attorney as soon as possible. Working with my firm may be your best option to ensure that your court orders are enforced.
