However, it should be remembered that this is not true with family law matters. In fact, with family law matters parties are permitted to file motions and to challenge the court’s decision if they believe that justice has not been served. They can file a post-judgment and custody action motion in some very easy steps and demand for another hearing.
What is post-judgment and custody actions?
Any action or proceeding that happens after the case has been finalized and the judgment has been given is called post-judgment action or proceedings. These actions are usually conducted in order to modify judgments. The most commonly filed post-judgment motions are child custody, child support, spousal support, and child visitation.
But while filing for the post-judgment and custody action one thing that the parties should remember is to demonstrate to the court the “change of circumstances.” This means that after the judgment when you are filing for a post-judgment motion you should be able to show to the court that from the date your judgment was entered to the present one, some situation has changed that has warranted the motion.
Making the post-judgment
You can file the motion for post-judgment on your own too. For that first, you will need to identify the court of jurisdiction, the court that has authority for your case. Once you have identified it, you can either visit or surf online for the rules of court which govern the subject of motion that you are considering filing. Every local court has these rules. These rules will aid you in getting your hands on the info that you may not know, like the case number of your divorce action.
