Undeniably, the most common and generally recognized area of Family Law is divorce. In its most basic concept, divorce litigation involves the formal and legal termination of a marital relationship, which gives rise to a myriad of competing issues, including alimony, child support, child custody, and equitable distribution. However, once the parties are officially divorced, a variety of post-decree issues become paramount, including a potential change in circumstances leading to the modification of alimony and child support obligations, changes in the custodial relationship (including Petitions to Relocate to move with children out of state), payment of college expenses, and general failure to adhere to the terms of the parties’ divorce. Unfortunately, the post-decree litigation endured by divorced parties can often last longer, and be more costly, than the initial divorce.
