Divorce Modification Lawyer in Westchester County
Changes in Circumstances May Warrant Modification
At Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law, we know that circumstances
change, and sometimes child support agreements made at the time of the
divorce need to be altered down the road. Our lead founding attorney received
the Leadership in Law Award for 2012 from
Long Island Business News, a testament to her hard work and tenacity in fighting for her clients
No matter how carefully the two parties in a divorce negotiate agreements
child support and
child custody, there may come a time when that arrangement is no longer working. If
a parent moves to another city, falls seriously ill, or loses a job, for
example, these new factors will need to be taken into consideration when
re-evaluating if the current arrangement is still best meeting the child's needs.
Likewise, a new medical diagnosis for a child could affect support. Either
party can request a modification when a parent's income has shifted
in either direction by 15% or more, or when 3 years have passed since
the initial agreement.
