New York Divorce Modification and Enforcement Attorneys

Modifications to Child Custody and Visitation

Even after a divorce order is finalized, you or your former spouse may find it necessary to make a modification. While these cases can become complex, it is possible to seek a modification to a custody or support agreement. At Johnson & Cohen, LLP, we are experienced in handling cases on behalf of individuals seeking modifications as well as in the defense against modifications. Our New York, attorneys will take the time to understand your individual needs and aggressively pursue your interests, in negotiation and settlement, or in court.

Modifications to Child Support and Maintenance

A need for a modification to child support or maintenance (alimony) order may arise if payor is unable to make a payment, lost a job, or has a change in income that affects their ability to pay. Similarly, an increase in payment obligations can be obtained if the payor has an increase in wages, received an inheritance, or has had a change in financial circumstances that make additional funds available. We can help you obtain a child support or alimony modification to increase or decrease payments obligations. We can also help you defend against such an application.

Relocation, changes to a busy schedule, and changes in life circumstances are all potential reasons for a modification to a custody order or visitation arrangement. The court may grant a modification if there is a significant change in circumstances and taking into consideration the best interests of the child(ren). Our attorneys can help you seek a modification for a custody order or help you defend against a modification to protect your rights.
