Post Decree Matters

These practice area statements are provided by the attorneys from Murphy & Dunn and represent their thoughts on practicing law over the past 36 years in family law. They are not legal advice. They are a general overview of the law, with specific statutes cited for your review, and opinions on how they generally apply in divorce cases in Illinois. Each and every case is different.

To learn more, and to see if the attorneys and staff at Murphy & Dunn, P.C. can help you, please visit our Contact page to schedule your free initial consultation.

The teams of attorneys at Murphy & Dunn, P.C. are there to help after the divorce is entered and when problems develop at a later date. These issues could be related to child support not being paid, maintenance not being paid, college expenses, educational expenses for high school or grade school, health insurance and uncovered health care expenses not being paid, parenting time, visitation and custody disputes, and many other issues that develop as time goes on.


As everyone knows, there is no way for the parties, their attorneys or the Judge to cover every issue that could come up in the future regarding the parties or their children. That is why G. Edward Murphy and his team of attorneys are there to go back to court to enforce or modify the terms of the prior Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage or any other prior Court Order if necessary. You must take action to enforce the Orders that are in effect if you want the benefit of them. You must seek to modify those Orders that are no longer in the best interests of your children. Don’t hesitate to contact the Murphy & Dunn, P.C. team to determine what your rights are and how to enforce or modify prior Orders if necessary.
