Ask Your Own Family Law Question

I am sorry to hear this;

when property is inadvertently left out of a divorce decree the parties can petition the court to reopen the case to address forgotten property. This is because the divorce court has jurisdiction over all marital property and that is required so there is a proper ownership determination of the property.

Tax issues for child dependents falls under child support; so a petition to modify child support can be sought based on a change in circumstances; so if there is a change in income for example the party can request a modification and simultaneously with that request ask for permission to claim the child every other year, or consistently.
