Every point in a divorce settlement is important. Whether you and your ex work out the agreement or if the court orders it, you should make sure that you understand each point. You also have to make sure that you follow the orders exactly as they are written.
In our previous blog post, we discussed a case in which a man who didn't pay his alimony payments was arrested. This is one reason why you need to make sure that you are making all support payments, including alimony and child support. If you have any questions about the orders you have, we can help you to get those answered.
If your divorce is still in the planning stage or the mediation phase, we can help you learn about what options you have for trying to work something out with your ex. We can help you as you go through the property division process so that you can start off your single life without all of the baggage associated with the marriage.
If you aren't able to keep up with your alimony or child support payments, don't try to run from the system. Instead, take action and seek a modification of the orders. If you are granted a modification, you might reduce the financial struggle that you are facing.
It is important to note that you can't just ask for a modification for no reason. Instead, you have to have had significant changes in your circumstances to seek a modification. We can help you learn about whether your situation qualifies or not. Whatever you do, don't ignore the issue -- take action right away.
