Child Support and Property Division in San Diego
The amount of a child support payment is one aspect that is frequently changed by post judgment actions in San Diego. Sometimes the non-custodial parent will lose their job, making it impossible to come up with child support each month. Sometimes an injury or lifestyle change may make it necessary to obtain a larger child support payment from a parent. Other times, a parent can fail to pay child support or fall behind on payments, making it necessary for a lawyer to take action to modify the agreement.
In most cases involving divorce, it must be decided how the couple’s assets will be divided. Typically a judge will provide specifics regarding the division of assets, and when either party to the divorce fails to follow the property division agreement, post judgment action may be taken with the help of an attorney. Oftentimes, proceeds from sold assets like homes or vehicles is not split properly between the couple, and in these cases a lawyer will have to return to court to make sure the agreement is enforced.
