Post-Divorce Issues in Rhode Island
Enforcement & Modification of Orders for Support, Visitation, Custody, and More
Once a divorce is finalized, there will often be orders in place that govern a variety of issues relating to your children, finances, and property. Unfortunately, circumstances in life can change unexpectedly at any moment. If issues occur after the court enters the order, it is possible to seek a modification with the assistance of a Rhode Island family law attorney. At McIntyre Tate LLP, we offer representation for clients in many post-divorce matters such as enforcement and modification of child custody and child support orders.
Frequently, a significant change in one individual's situation may require the modification of an order. Support orders may be modified if there is a substantial change in the income of the person paying the support. In addition, if one parent relocates, it may be possible to modify a child custody order.
