Judge modifying court orderAt the Law Offices of Steven P. Monaghan, LLC, we put clients first. When you contact us about making a change to alimony, child support, child custody or any other order, you can be confident that we will move quickly to make the necessary changes. If you are concerned about stopping changes proposed by the other party, such as relocation of your child to another state, our Monmouth County divorce lawyers will see that your interests are considered.

The Standard for Making Modifications

Essentially, some sort of life change is necessary to request a modification. In child custody cases, the life change may be a schedule change or relocation. Sometimes, modification of custody is also necessary to protect a child from abuse or neglect, or exposure to drugs or alcohol. In child support and alimony cases, the life change may be job loss, promotion, demotion, or remarriage. In rare situations, even property distribution can be modified.

If you need to make changes to existing custody, child support, alimony or other post-decree modifications, call us at (732) 624-6343 to schedule a free consultation with the Monmouth County divorce attorneys at the Law Offices of Steven P.
