Helping Clients Navigate Changes to Their Divorce Settlement

Ayvazian Law is here to help you resolve your post-trial issues.
No matter how your situation has changed, Ayvazian Law can effectively create a strategy for your case.

Reasons for Modifications of Support & Custody
The court only grants modifications when one party demonstrates that it is necessary to do so. This typically involves some change in the life circumstances of one spouse, or possibly a child. However, it does take careful documentation and presentation of arguments to effectively argue for a modification.
The following are some common reasons individuals request modifications to a divorce settlement:
- One party has a major increase or decrease in income
- Either spouse remarries
- A medical emergency occurs, affecting financial need
- Some other event increases or decreases one party’s financial need
- One parent moves into or out of the state, requiring “domestication” of an order
Our attorney can help you collect and present evidence in favor of your modification to the court. Additionally, we can effectively litigate for your best interests and ensure your position is properly represented to obtain a positive outcome.
Contempt in Family Law Cases
Contempt is a civil action used to attempt to force compliance when an individual has not followed a court ruling. One party may make a complaint of contempt if the other party fails to pay child support, for example. But if one person has found they are unable to make payments, they may request a modification in order to avoid contempt.
