What is a Post-Judgment Action?
A post-judgment action is a case that is opened after the final judgment has been entered with the court. This is typically done in one of two ways, a modification or a contempt motion.
There are plenty of reasons why you may need to modify an underlying agreement, but the moving party must meet the threshold of a substantial change in circumstances, or be able to assert reasonable grounds as to why such a modification would be in the child(ren)’s best interest. The court requires that Substantial changes may include, but are not limited to a change in a party’s income, a change in the physical custody arrangement, or even an emergency.
Contempt is when a party willfully does not abide by a current Court Order. For an example, if one parent does not stay current on their child support obligation a motion for contempt may be filed in order to pursue a remedy.
