Once a divorce degree is granted, a judge is unlikely to modify it, but issues like alimony awards, child custody arrangements, and child support amounts can potentially be modified post-judgment if the party meets the test of “substantial change in circumstances.” There may also be grounds for post-judgement contempt, if one of the parties fails to comply with the terms of a court’s order, for example by willfully denying visitation rights or by failing to pay alimony or child support in a timely manner.
Judges will not undo the terms of your divorce post-judgment. However, there are instances where a modification is appropriate or a contempt matter necessary. A competent attorney can advise you on what route to pursue and the nuances in the law required to prevail on same.
While there may be limits on discovery and other proceedings in a post-judgement hearing, an attorney knows how to provide the judge with critical information that may lead to achieving client goals.
