Everyone’s life changes — whether you get a new job, lose a job, remarry, or relocate, your divorce decree or parenting order may need to be changed to reflect the changed circumstances in your life. Court orders can be modified if there has been a continuing change in circumstances. Provisions of your order that can be modified include:
- Spousal maintenance
- Child support
- Parenting time/visitation schedules
Whatever your current situation, the Law Office of Karen A. Schoenau can help modify or oppose modifications of your court orders. She has more than two decades experience in family law with an emphasis on complex child custody cases.Phoenix Post-Decree Enforcement Attorney
Sometimes you have to bring an action to enforce certain provisions of your divorce decree such as property distribution and payment of spousal support or child support or the payment of uncovered health care costs for the children and some attorney fee awards. Karen Schoenau can help you enforce your orders.
In almost every divorce decree or family court order regarding custody and parenting time, there is a requirement that parties partake in mediation or some other form of alternate dispute resolution before they bring modification requests before a judge. Sometimes, settlement is the best way to achieve the right outcome, but other times your rights need to be protected in court. We will assist you in the preparation for the mediation through Conciliation Services, making sure you are prepared to address all of the issues. We will also be prepared to file a petition with the court should the mediation fail to resolve everything. We will be by your side during private mediation, protecting your rights.Talk to our Phoenix Divorce Modifications Attorney
