Modification Proceedings in NY
Get Help from Long Island & Huntington Family Lawyers
After a divorce or family proceeding, the court will outline a person's
legal and financial responsibilities with regard to
child custody, 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
divorce lawyers in Long Island & Huntington at The Meyers Law Group, P.C. 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
The Meyers Law Group, P.C., 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
