Enforcement and Modification
Modifying existing court orders
As time passes, it is natural for circumstances to change. The court order that once worked may no longer be befitting. At Graff & Associates, we can help alter or modify existing court orders to fit your situations better, including child support, child custody and visitation, and alimony. These orders may be subject to modification if a parent or child experiences significant changes, such as job loss, decreased or increase in salary, increase in childcare, and the onset or recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction. Contact us today to see what other circumstances could affect modifications to your existing order.
What happens when a parent wants to move away?
If you are considering relocating with your child but are subject to an existing child custody order, you must get the court’s permission before moving. If you fail to do so, Pennsylvania courts can interpret your actions as an attempt to alienate the other parent.
If you have recently learned that your child’s other parent is planning to move, contacting an experienced lawyer who understands your rights is imperative. By taking quick action, you may be able to stop the move. If you seek to move or oppose another parent’s move, contact us today to find out your legal options.
