Modification of Court Orders After Divorce

Post-Decree Modifications in New York City

If the terms of your divorce settlement have become unworkable for you for any reason, you can petition a family law judge to modify your court orders. Your request will only be granted when you can demonstrate clear and convincing evidence to prove the necessity of the change, so it is advisable to seek the assistance of a respected New York City divorce lawyer to maximize your chances of success. If you are serious about getting results, come to Hindin Deutsch, P.C. for help. We have more than four decades of experience and have an attorney who has been named by our peers as a Super Lawyer. The outcome of this situation may have a life-changing impact on your future, and we will work tirelessly to provide you with the bold legal representation you deserve.

If you have lost your job or suffered a pay cut and can no longer afford to supply the same amount of child support or spousal maintenance, you cannot simply stop paying, as you could end up with your wages garnished, you could lose your driver's license or even be arrested. You must secure the approval of the court before you can make any changes to the terms of your divorce settlement. We can also represent you if you have been receiving support and now require more for any reason, such as if your child has increased expenses for education or medical care, or if you believe that your former spouse can now afford to pay more.

Helping the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community

It is also possible to request a modification to the parenting plan you received at the end of your divorce. The non-custodial parent may seek to expand the schedule of visitation, as well as petitioning for shared child custody. If you have reason to believe that your children are not safe with your former spouse, we can help you request an emergency modification to gain sole custody until a full hearing can be held to settle the matter.
