Cedar Rapids Post-Decree Modification Lawyer

Life goes on after divorce, and sooner or later court orders or parenting agreements need to be revisited. Sometimes parents agree to modify the plan, but very often one side is pushing for change and the other side is strongly opposed.

At M. Victoria Cole Law Firm P.C., we provide vigorous representation to parents on either side of modification or enforcement of custody orders and child support orders. Based in Cedar Rapids, we practice in family courts of Linn County, Johnson County and surrounding counties of Eastern Iowa.
