Generally, in the family world, problems can occur after the divorce is final. These types of matters are known as post-marital matters and may include the modification of child support, alimony, visits, or custody.
When is it necessary to modify a final order?
You can modify a final order when there has been a material and substantial change in the circumstances that involve the welfare of the children. Such circumstances may include the following:
o One of the parents has decided to move because of work
o There is a substantial increase or decrease in the income of the father who covers child support
o The father has criminal behavior after a final order
o A fact changes the children´s needs

Execution of a court order
There are cases in which there is a breach by one of the parties as agreed, and it is necessary to file a court order with a judge. Among these cases, we can mention the following:
o The parent who was ordered to pay child support stops making child support payments.
o The spouse who was ordered to pay support stops making alimony payments.
o Some of the parties do not transfer the property that was ordered to be transferred to another party.
o Some of the parties do not comply with the custody and visitation provisions of children of a final order.
