What Are Some Post Divorce Legal Issues?

Even when a divorce proceeding is finalized, there may still be some legal issues facing each party. Divorce is only the beginning of life-long changes that can take some time to fully resolve. Some common post-divorce legal issues that need to be confronted include:

It is also possible for new issues to arise after the divorce. For instance, if new information surfaces after divorce – such as information about joint business ventures – the parties may need to review their legal options.

Can the Ruling of a Divorce Judgment Be Modified?

One of the more frequently asked questions regarding divorce is about modifying spousal support or alimony. Spousal support may change after divorce according to the needs of either person. For example, if either one of them landed a different job, or lost a job, the appropriate amount of support may need to be adjusted. Additionally, spousal support may be modified or even cancelled if the receiving party gets remarried.

Similar changes can be made with regards to child custody, visitation, and support. These issues are often deemed “finalized” with a divorce, but they may change over time. Thus, post-divorce decisions and changes can often have more impact in the long run than the initial court rulings set forth during the divorce trial. 

Do I Need a Lawyer for Post-Divorce Legal Issues?

Post-divorce legal issues often require the assistance of a qualified family law attorney. You should hire a lawyer if you discover any legal issues or concerns after a divorce proceeding, particularly if the opposing party is represented by an attorney. Your lawyer will be able to advise you on how to proceed, and can offer you valuable legal advice and representation to help resolve any post-divorce issues.
