New York Post-Divorce Modifications Lawyer
Update Your Court Order with our Family Law Attorneys
While court orders related to child custody, child support, alimony, and
other family law issues are binding, they are by no means permanent. In
many cases, these orders can lose their relevance or become unfair to
one or more parties as time goes on and circumstances change, requiring
them to be modified or discarded entirely for the good of those involved.
With that being said,
family law modifications are not guaranteed and often require the expertise of a
knowledgeable attorney in order to be approved.

are no longer relevant, or if your ex-spouse is pursuing a modification

Who Can Get a Modification in New York?
It is important to note that individuals may not receive a modification
simply because they disagree with a court order. To be approved by a family
court, a petitioning party must be able to demonstrate that a considerable
change in circumstances has occurred since the order’s initial creation.
Acceptable reasons for modifications may include:
- Loss of employment
- The changing needs of a child
- Substantial increases or decreases in income
- Disability or changes in health
- Substantial changes in time spent between a child and parent
- Employment-related relocation
- Substance abuse of either party
Modifications can be pursued by either party and can be related to most
issues, including support arrangements, custody, and visitation. Just
like divorce itself, modifications may be pursued in an amicable manner
and submitted to the court for approval with the agreement of both parties.
Whatever the case may be, any sort of modification should be handled with
the assistance of a skilled attorney to iron out the details and avoid
costly delays and pitfalls.
