AFTER MARRIAGE

Even with your divorce behind you, a slew of challenges may still remain.

In or out of the courtroom, we will work with you to ensure divorce agreements and orders are followed. If a change is warranted, Attorney Summers and his team will devise the proper strategy to acheieve the best result for you and your family.

 

If your ex-spouse (or, if never married, your child's other parent) has failed to meet court-ordered obligations, then you may be entitled to "contempt sanctions" against them. While a Complaint for Contempt may be filed as a result of any violation of a court order or Judgment, it is most often filed because of an ex-spouse’s failure to comply with a parenting plan, child support, property division, or alimony order.

Attorney Summers skillfully prosecutes contempt actions such that the party disobeying the court order or Judgment will likely "make good" on his/her obligations prior to ever stepping foot in a courthouse. If court appearances are necessary, you can rest assured that Attorney Summers possesses the requisite experience to secure "contempt sanctions" from the court, including the payment of your attorneys' fees an expenses.

“I hired Tyler to represent me in a post-divorce modification action. I wanted to move out of state with my children. Tyler took the case to trial and we achieved my goal of being able to leave the state. He was such an amazing advocate and partner throughout many months of difficult and emotional litigation.”
