Wheat Ridge Divorce Attorney | I Lost My Job, Do I Still Have to Pay Alimony?

no-money-2070384_640.jpgWhen a couple gets a divorce in Wheat Ridge, Arvada, or Golden, one spouse is often ordered to pay spousal maintenance or alimony to the other in order to maintain the lifestyle the receiving spouse was accustomed to. This situation is usually the case when one spouse earned a significant amount more than the other, or when one spouse was a stay at home parent. But, what happens if the paying party loses their job and can no longer make payments?

smiley-2979107_640.jpgWhen the Jefferson County Court enters an order regarding child custody and the allocation of parental responsibilities, it is expected to be followed. Even if everyone involved was originally on board and there were no contested issues, that doesn't mean that things always stay that way.

Wheat Ridge Child Custody Attorney | Following Parenting Plans and Losing Custody in Jefferson County

mother-1245764_640.jpgI recently read an article about a woman who temporarily lost custody of her children for not following the terms of her court ordered parenting plan, as ordered through her divorce agreement. When a person signs a divorce agreement that includes parental responsibilities and different clauses related to child-rearing, those are set in stone. Unless you go back to the Jefferson County Court to have the orders modified, there are serious repercussions for not following the orders. The mother had her children taken from her for not following the religious-upbringing clause of their divorce agreement. She had agreed to raise the children in a strictly Orthodox Jewish home. The mother, however, came out as gay, which the father felt conflicted with the Hasidic Judaism traditions they agreed to raise their children under.

Wheat Ridge Divorce Attorney | Filing for Contempt of Court

divorce-separation-marriage-breakup-split-39483.jpegWe often talk with people in Wheat Ridge, Mountain View, and Westminster, who find themselves frustrated when after a divorce, their ex-spouse won't follow court orders related to spousal support payments (alimony), child support payments, or child custody. When a Jefferson County Court judge enters an order, the expectation is that both parties will abide. So, what can your lawyer do if one party is not following the order? One form of action is to file a contempt of court motion. Filing this motion can have serious legal consequences, so you want to make sure it is the best course of action before taking this step.
