At the end of the divorce proceeding, the judge will draft an order that clarifies the addressed factors of the case. Issues like child support payments and child custody and visitation structures are detailed by the order. In addition, the order also dictates the consequences for not following the judge’s order. If, however, circumstances have changed in your life or the life of your previous spouse, it might be necessary to request a modification from the court. A judge’s order cannot reasonably take into account the unforeseen variables of the future and New Jersey courts are willing to hear cases in support of modification. At the Paris P. Eliades Law Firm, LLC, we have years of experience related to post-judgment modifications and what the court requires from each party in order to achieve a positive outcome.
What factors are modified?
Whether your circumstances have changed based on losing a job, a recent illness, family relocation or your ex-spouse is now cohabitating with another individual, it is crucial that you act quickly. Our Sparta post-judgment divorce modification lawyers have represented clients seeking modifications for several factors, including:
Why would factors need to be modified?
For every issue that can be modified, New Jersey courts will require the requesting party to demonstrate a significant, unforeseen, and continuing change in their situation to the court. In cases related to child support, one might request a modification because of a loss of employment or change of custody. In cases related to spousal support, one might request a modification because of a change in the other party’s financials, the decline of their own health, or a party’s cohabitation with another person. For child custody and visitation issues, one might request a modification related to relocation, medical issues, change in work schedule, and other factors that would affect the life of a child. If you are in need of a post-judgment modification, you must have overwhelming evidence to support your claim. Whatever the case, Paris P. Eliades Law Firm, LLC has the knowledge and experience to effectively demonstrate to the courts that your request is valid.
