Taking advantage of every settlement opportunity, Diane are not afraid to take your case to court and fight to protect your rights, no matter what kind of post-divorce dispute you may be involved in:

Modifications: If there has been a significant change to your financial situation or that of your former spouse, you can modify your divorce settlement, accordingly. Job loss, remarriage, an increase or decrease in salary can all be reasons to modify your divorce judgment. If there is a material change in your circumstances that has occurred subsequent to your divorce being granted, Diane can pursue your interests by filing for a modification with the court.

Contempt: When one person does not live up to his or her responsibilities, your entire family feels the effects. Our lawyers can help you take legal action to enforce the terms of your divorce judgment by filing a complaint for contempt with the court. In many situations, the party that has not complied with the terms of the divorce judgment will have to pay all attorney fees incurred.
