Post-Divorce Issues

New situations which arise after a divorce frequently cause people to seek expert Family Law assistance. Even when the divorce is in the rear-view mirror, conflicts arise as families and circumstances change over time. It is important to seek experienced legal counsel to protect your interests when you or the other party petitions to modify court orders and Final Judgments of Divorce. These can include things such as the need to make an application to change custody or parenting time, an application to address how college or other post-high school program expenses will be allocated between parents or an application resulting from a parent’s changes in finances such as the retirement, illness or job loss.  A party’s retirement, a party’s cohabitation and parental relocation are other post-divorce issues which frequently require an application to the Court. The detailed pleadings and legal briefs which need to be filed in cases such as these require a deep knowledge of the applicable law as well as significant experience with post-judgment applications. Often, a plenary hearing is required. The Family Law attorneys at Capehart Scatchard have handled innumerable post-divorce applications to the Court on every possible subject.
