Changes in Your Circumstances
Are you having trouble supporting yourself or your children because of your former spouse’s failure to satisfy his or her child support or alimony obligations? Has a substantial change in circumstances made the existing child support order inadequate to meet your child’s needs?
At The Law Offices of Andrew M. Smith, P.A., we help our clients enforce child support and alimony agreements and orders. We also aggressively represent clients seeking to enforce their parenting and/or visitation rights against a parent who is not acting in the best interests of the parties’ children.
Holding a Non‑Paying Spouse Accountable via Enforcement of Orders
Attorney Andrew Smith has experience in enforcing the terms of support orders. In Florida, a “substantial change in circumstances” can be grounds for increasing, decreasing, or terminating, child support or alimony obligations, or for modifying the terms of a child custody order. However, if a spouse is disregarding the divorce decree, we will immediately file a motion seeking enforcement of the order, and, if appropriate, an order holding the other party in contempt.
For more information or to schedule an appointment with an experienced lawyer regarding a contempt charge for non‑payment of child support or enforcement of orders, please contact us.
