When the circumstances of people's lives change substantially, so may the terms of their court orders relating to child custody, child support and alimony.
The Law Offices of Veronica R. Norgaard, LLC, assists clients in revising their financial obligations and other terms according to New Jersey guidelines. The firm also represents clients who seek to enforce existing terms or stop another party's request to modify them.
Modifications of Visitation, Custody and Spousal Support | Brick Support Modifications Attorney
The factors New Jersey courts consider when evaluating requests for modifications include:
- Has the party's income increased or decreased substantially?
- Has the party remarried?
- Has the party moved out of state?
- Is the party a good influence, can provide a stable home, and provide for the material and emotional needs of the children?
- Does the party abuse alcohol or drugs, and if so, has he/she completed treatment?
- Is the party violent?
- Has the party committed a crime?
The answers to these questions can mean the following: more money for a parent or child if the divorced spouse (or estranged other party) earns more money, reduced obligations if a parent loses a job or suffers another hardship, or increased child custody if a child is endangered by an unsafe parent or environment.
