Modifications of Support and Custody

As your children grow older, their needs may change. Custody arrangements that made sense at the time a Judgment was entered may no longer be in their best interests. Similarly, a change of circumstances may make the terms of a Judgment for modifiable maintenance or child support unreasonable. 

We will carefully consider the specific facts of your case to advise whether a motion to modify the terms of your custody, child support, or maintenance arrangements is advisable.

What justifies a modification?

Changes that may justify a modification of custody include the following:

  • Relocation
  • Issues relating to the mental or physical health of the children or a parent, abusive or difficult communications between parents
  • Serious disagreements relating to major parenting issues
  • A parent’s remarriage or cohabitation

Changes that may justify a modification of maintenance or child support include the following:

  • Changes in employment
  • Failure to use good-faith efforts to become self-supporting
  • Retirement
  • Remarriage
  • Change in expenses for the child
