When Can I Pursue a Post-Divorce Modification in New Jersey?

In general, the following two elements must apply to your situation in order to qualify for a modification of your divorce decree:

  • You have experienced a permanent change in circumstances: You will need to prove to the family court that the change is not temporary.
  • Your divorce agreement does not specifically discuss this change: Divorce decrees can include stipulations for all sorts of life events, like graduations and retirement. If the change involved is already accounted for in the decree, it may not be possible to seek a modification. So, you’ll need to establish that this is an unexpected and unforeseen change that has not been accounted for in the decree.

What Are the Different Types of Post-Divorce Modifications in Monmouth County?

When it comes to altering the terms of a divorce agreement, it may be possible to pursue modifications for:

  • Spousal support: If the payor can no longer afford these payments due to loss of employment or health changes, it may be possible to seek a reduction or termination of these payments. Payors may also seek modifications on the grounds of cohabitation.
  • Child support: Like spousal support, child support payments may be adjusted with significant, permanent changes to the payor’s employment and/or health status. These payments may also be modified when a payor has additional children.
  • Child custody, parenting time & child relocation: While the grounds for seeking these modifications can be similar to those for support payments, the court will always prioritize the child’s best interests when making a decision in these cases.

Whether you need to modify or uphold the terms of your divorce, you can count on the Red Bank family lawyers at Dwyer, Bachman, Newman & Solop Attorneys at Law for the highest-quality representation.

Post-Divorce Enforcement Actions in Monmouth County

All too often, one party in a divorce won’t honor the terms of a final decree. When that means failing to pay spousal support or child support—or failing to comply with the terms of child custody agreements—going back to court is usually the best move.

When you go to court for post-divorce enforcement actions, a family law judge can decide whether to take actions, like (but not limited to):

  • Issuing bench warrants
  • Revoking driver’s licenses
  • Garnishing wages
  • Seizing assets
  • Revisiting custody arrangements

Our attorneys can help you file, prepare, and present these cases, positioning them for the best possible resolutions.
