You have been through a divorce or custody determination. You have your Judgment and Decree. You thought the battle was over.
Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Often, the other party refuses to follow the Orders set out in the Judgment and Decree. There may be financial issues that you or the other party were required to deal with within a certain period of time after the Judgment and Decree was issued, and they have not been taken care of yet. There are times when both parties expected certain events to transpire after their divorce, which never occurred.
This either leaves the parties screaming at each other to comply with the Court Order, or both parties scratching their heads about what to do while financial assets lose value or costs accrue to both parties.
Post-decree disputes are common and often require immediate intervention from attorneys and the Court to reach a resolution. Individuals who put off hiring an attorney or returning to Court for post-decree issues often face much higher costs as problems tend to snowball post-decree.
