Typically one of the most heated topics in any divorce, child custody matters should be carefully addressed. After a divorce, it may be necessary to seek a modification of a current child custody order in accordance with a significant change in circumstances involving the child or a parent. Parental relocation, domestic violence, or drug abuse may be reasons for altering a custody agreement.
Depending on the case, one parent may be required to pay child support to the other parent in order to care for their child or children. Both parents are required to contribute to supporting the child, and in some cases, this means that child support will be necessary, though the amount will vary depending on the number of children, special needs, and more. Job loss, a promotion, or a change in a child's educational or medical needs may warrant a modification of child support. These cases can be complex and require proof that the modification is truly necessary.

Contempt of Court
A person who fails to comply with a court order may be held in "contempt of court" and may face specific penalties, such as fines and even imprisonment. In the realm of family law, a person may be held in contempt of court for failing to pay child support or failing to comply with a child custody order. Court orders involving alimony, child support, and custody are important and should not be violated in any way. If your spouse refuses to comply with a court order related to your divorce, it is important to seek legal counsel to determine what options you have.
In a situation where parents share custody of a child or when one parent has primary custody, moving more than 50 miles away from the other parent makes it necessary to get court permission. Moving away without permission may be considered a violation of a court order, which may have serious repercussions.
In a case where a parent is not rewarded custody of their child, the parent may seek visitation rights in order to maintain a meaningful relationship with their child.
