Need a Modification?
Speak with a Dedicated Ocean County Family Lawyer
For couples and families who need to establish cooperation for custody,
visitation, and support or alimony reasons, they will need to establish
legal agreements as part of their separation, divorce, or lives apart
as parents. These agreements can be hard to establish, take careful consideration
by all parties, and must be approved by a judge. What happens, then, when
one party can no longer hold up their end of the agreement? In these cases,
when circumstances for one party have changed, it may be time to pursue
Modifications to support, custody, and visitation are not taken lightly
in family court and need to be properly and emphatically put forth in
court. That is why it is critical for those seeking a modification to
secure convincing and knowledgeable counsel. At

Grounds for Modification
Even if the other party in your agreement is amenable to a change in your
custody or support modification, it needs to be established in court.
Just because the other party verbally agrees to an adjustment does not
make it a legally recognized change and it can cause further complications
down the line.
Common grounds for modifications can include:
- Remarriage by one of the parties in the agreement
- A sudden change in income or retirement
- A significant change in the health of a party or a child
- A significant change in the well-being of a child
- Relocation (moving) of one of the parties
- A serious health concern of one of the parties or the child
Even if you have a legitimate reason for a modification, you must ensure
that the effect it will have on your support or custody agreement is made
clearly to the court. Take the uncertainty out this process and call Jay
Turnbach, Esq., LLC. Our founding attorney has represented countless New
Jersey clients and families and spoken effectively on their behalf in court.
