In a perfect world, a divorce agreement or judgment will serve as a lasting and permanent solution. In reality, however, situations change and modification frequently becomes necessary.
Whether you need to modify the amount of spousal support or child support you are paying or require assistance with enforcing the terms of your divorce agreement, we are fully prepared to assist you. At Lonich & Patton, our lawyers have helped clients modify and enforce divorce agreements for more than 10 years.

Why Modify a Divorce Agreement?
Our attorneys have an extensive family law background and work hard to ensure that the divorce agreement accurately reflects our clients' needs and goals.
This dedicated advocacy extends to those situations where a change in circumstances has necessitated a modification to an existing divorce agreement. Some common examples of a change in circumstances include:
- A parent wanting to re-locate or move away with the child
- A child graduating high school, making child support unnecessary
- A parent getting a new job or losing their job
- A former spouse re-marrying and no longer needing alimony
- A parent looking to regain child custody after meeting court requirements
Whether you want the divorce agreement modified or need help stopping your former spouse from modifying it, we will protect your best interests. Our attorneys thoroughly prepare every case to be successful in trial. We also have a strong record of resolving cases through mediation — a cost-effective and collaborative approach.
Extensive Experience Enforcing Divorce Agreements
A divorce can be emotionally draining, and its aftermath especially stressful when either side fails to follow through with the terms of the divorce agreement. We have extensive experience representing clients who have not received child support or who have not had the terms of their visitation arrangement honored by the former spouse.
If your former spouse is not meeting the terms of your divorce agreement, we will take aggressive action, including filing a contempt action, garnishing wages or obtaining a property lien. We also vigorously defend those clients wrongly accused of not following the terms of the divorce agreement.
