The judgment of divorce is the document that grants the divorce. It also deals with spousal support, custody, child support, parenting time, insurance, the property settlement, and other issues. You will have an opportunity to read the judgment and discuss it with your attorney before it is entered with the court.

Child support may be modified if there is a change of circumstances. Support is usually ordered until the child reaches 18 years of age or graduates from high school (but not past the age of 19½).

Nonpayment of court-ordered support may lead to a contempt of court citation, and may result in a jail term.
