Are You Facing Issues After Divorce?

Moving on after divorce is difficult, even when your ex-spouse complies with all aspects of the judgment and you are both able to avoid major life changes such as a job loss. Unfortunately, a significant number of divorced individuals do encounter a need for legal representation in the months or years after their divorce becomes final.

Contact me for capable help with child support enforcement, collection of arrearages or other Post-Judgement issues. I represent individuals who want personal, attentive service that gets results in their domestic relations case.

Your Lawyer For Child Support Enforcement Actions

A need for child support enforcement, often including the collection of arrearages, is one of the most common issue that comes up for custodial parents after divorce. Our Michigan laws are strongly on your side if you face this problem, but navigating the processes to obtain enforcement can be very challenging and time-consuming without an experienced family law attorney working on your behalf.

I empathize with your critical need for funds intended to provide for your children's needs. I have experience filing enforcement motions and more forceful show-cause actions that may get results in the form of income withholding, interception of tax refunds, property liens, license revocations or even incarceration.

I also help fathers who are behind (or "in arrears") on their child support payments. Failure to pay child support can result in jail time, but time in jail is often counterproductive to paying the support that is owed. I examine each situation and the arrearages (the amount owed), and work with fathers to establish a payment plan, or help them seek a reduction or waiver of a portion of the child support they owe.

Representing You When You Encounter Major Life Changes

I am also well equipped to take the appropriate legal action for you in a range of other Post-Judgement issues, including:

  • Filing for modifications of child support, child custody or parenting time when any party's financial or other life circumstances change substantially
  • Taking action that compels an ex-spouse to comply with financial stipulations in your judgment, such as paying a portion of debts that were split or refinancing property

As an experienced domestic relations and family law attorney, I have strong knowledge of the Michigan laws surrounding Post-Judgement issues. To discuss your options and what we may be able to accomplish through legal action, please contact me at The Law Offices of Julie A. Hlywa to arrange a free consultation.
