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 a modification.

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 Jay Turnbach, Esq., LLC, our legal team has nearly two decades of family law experience and brings personalized and compassionate service to each and every one of our clients.

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.
