Families are dynamic and ever-changing. After divorce, a former spouse's income may substantially increase or decrease. Or, a parent may seek to relocate because of a better employment opportunity. Or, a parent may fail and/or refuse to pay child support, educational expenses, extracurricular expenses, or uncovered medical expenses. And, the parties' child, having grown up, may seek to further his or her education at a college or university.
After the entry of a final divorce judgment or parentage order, circumstances may significantly change, necessitating further legal action. In Illinois, further legal action after divorce is characterized as "post-judgment." Post-judgment legal actions may include the following:
- Parental Relocation;
- Enforcement/Contempt; and
- Post-Secondary Educational Expenses for Non-Minor Children.
Illinois has specific legal standards and evidentiary burdens relating to the above-mentioned post-judgment legal actions. Consequently, it is prudent to consult with a knowledgeable and trusted attorney concerning a possible post-judgment legal action. At Richard W.
