While a marital dissolution ends the financial relationship between spouses, there are often difficulties that may arise after the final judgment is entered and spouses become divorced. Marital dissolution results in orders that establish property division, spousal support, custody, visitation and child support. Sometimes it is necessary to enforce these orders and resolve disputes that arise after the divorce process is over. Because of our vast experience in and dedication to family law, the Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., offers representation in San Francisco and the Bay Area for former clients, as well as new clients, in all California post-divorce matters.
Whether you need to enforce or modify an existing order, or to defend an action for modification or enforcement, the Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., provides compassionate, yet aggressive representation.
While the issuance of a final decree of dissolution does end a marriage, the law relating to enforcement of final orders is complex and specific to each area of family law. It is important that you have an attorney who is knowledgeable in this complicated area to ensure that your rights are protected while dealing with a post-divorce dispute.
Unfortunately, not all persons abide by their legal obligations. It may be necessary to request that the court order a party to comply with the requirements of the final judgment of dissolution. Enforcement can be time-consuming, often requires court intervention, and may require litigation if the party who has not complied with the terms of a final order does not take steps to right the wrong. At the Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., we will diligently advocate for you to resolve issues relating to post-divorce enforcement, whether by negotiation or litigation.
