Florham Park Lawyers Helping Clients Modify Child Support Orders
Divorce agreements are living documents that must be modified as either party's circumstances change or as children age. Seeking a modification of a divorce agreement, however, is not as straightforward as it may seem. Courts often require legal arguments and precedent when making their determinations. To ensure your argument is properly supported, it is important that you reach out to an experienced family law attorney to assist you.
At Levine & Levine, our Morris County divorce modification lawyers bring decades of experience to each new client they represent. While we attempt to resolve all family legal issues through mediation or collaborative law, we are also comfortable pursing your interests in court. To learn more about our divorce agreement modification services, call us at (973) 210-7050 or contact us online.
Modifying an Order After a Substantial Change in Circumstances
New Jersey law states that an order can be modified when there has been a "significant change in circumstances," which can relate to anything from the age of any children involved to a change in income. Orders that our family law attorneys are experienced in seeking modifications for include:
In situations where children are involved, such as relocation or move-away requests, or child support modification requests, the court will always first consider whether the modification is in the best interests of the children.
We Represent Individuals on Either Side of a Modification Request
Whether you are the individual who is seeking the change or the individual who wishes to fight against the change, we can help. Also, it is important for you to understand that the change need not happen to you for you to be able to seek a modification. Indeed, if the father of your children just received an increase in salary or if the mother of your child is intentionally underemployed, you can seek a modification of your order to represent that change.
