About Modification Proceedings
Long Island Divorce Lawyer
After a divorce proceeding, the court will outline a person's legal and financial responsibilities with regard to child support, spousal support, visitation rights,
equitable distribution, and other familial issues. However, when certain circumstances in life change, a person may need to request a modification in regards to their obligation over those issues. People may experience a job loss, sudden illness, a reduction in benefits, custody problems, or they may have to relocate, etc. Whether the change in life is personal or financial, our
Long Island divorce attorneys at Meyers Law Group, PC handle modification proceedings to readdress these issues.
Common Reasons to Request Modification
When a request has been made to make a change regarding visitation, child support, spousal support, child custody, and equitable distribution, the court must reexamine the judge's original stipulations. If the judge feels a modification to the original order is valid and in everyone's best interest, the court may amend or modify the current order and draft a completely new order to reflect the new circumstances that have arisen. At Meyers Law Group, PC, our team has guided, advised, and represented hundreds of clients through their modification proceedings. We have helped clients seek modifications for the following reasons:
- An increase or decrease in the amount of child support or spousal support a person is required to pay
- An increase in child support to help finance education, healthcare, daycare, etc.
- A change in regards to child custody and visitation arrangements
- A change regarding the distribution of marital property and assets
