Modification and Enforcement of Current Court Order

Enforce Orders that are Being Ignored or Change Orders that are Outdated


Contact us today to meet with an experienced attorney and discuss how you can change or enforce a current court order.

Sometimes, Court orders need to be modified to accommodate changes in a child's schedule or the parent's income. Modification of parenting time, legal decision-making, child support and spousal maintenance can be obtained given you meet certain initial requirements. 

If the current order does not need to be modified but one party is just simply not following it, you may consider filing an enforcement action with the Court.

Generally, a parent cannot file a motion to modify legal decision-making or parenting time for one year after the order they want to modify was signed. (See A.R.S. §25-411). The parent who wants to modify the order must also show a substantial change of circumstances effecting the child's welfare. There are exceptions where the child’s present environment may seriously endanger the child’s physical, mental, moral or emotional health. (See A.R.S. §25-411). There are other instances permitting a modification of legal decision-making and/or parenting time. We recommend you consider discussing your options with an experienced family law attorney prior to filing.
