Sometimes as years pass and needs change, you and your ex-spouse may need legal assistance with modifying the terms of your divorce. This may include the need to change child support, visitation, custody, spousal support or alimony agreements. It is crucial that you procure knowledgeable and skilled legal assistance with these matters, and you can receive a consultation and the help you need by making contact with a New York divorce lawyer.
Obtaining a post-divorce modification involves several important steps. First, the party that is requesting a change bears the burden of proof to the court that significant changes to circumstances or needs merit a change to terms. For instance, a loss of employment or substantial change in pay may require an adjustment to child support requirements. This may affect spousal support agreements as well, in addition to other circumstances such as remarriage or an increased ability to be self-supporting by the other spouse.
Finally, you may be seeking a modification to child custody terms, and for this you must prove such factors such as a change in the child’s home environment or petition on such issues as a relocation that would remove the child from the state or alter visitation opportunities.
