Modification of Judgements for Child Support, Child Custody, and Spousal Support
Any person involved in a judgement for child support, child custody, or spousal support can submit a petition to have that judgement or order modified. Most of the time, these petitions are filed when one party or the other has experienced some type of change in their circumstances from gaining new employment to a large financial loss.
When a modification is submitted to the courts, it MUST keep the child’s best interests in mind. This means that the changed circumstances cannot greatly affect the child or put the child in a position where it would cause more harm than good.
Some of the most commonly claimed circumstances that require a modification include:
- A deteriorating mental or physical condition of the party
- A conviction of a crime committed by a party
- A former spouse getting remarried
- A party decides to move out of state
- A former spouse receives a promotion, takes on a new job, or receives a financial raise
- A child’s needs change
- One of the parties interferes with a current order or the child’s relationship with the parent
It is important that you do NOT take matters into your own hands, as this can lead to a violation of the order for yourself. If you are having trouble with an order or you think it needs to be modified, contact our Queens, NY divorce lawyer today.
