Post-Judgment Modification of Support
Staten Island Family Lawyer A. Sheralynn Dow
Circumstances in your life may have changed since your divorce was finalized
with a settlement agreement. You may need greater assistance with child
support due to the increased needs of your children or due to a loss of
income. You may need further spousal support from an ex-spouse so that
you can get the education or job training required to transition yourself
into the job market. You may have been beset by an illness or disability
that has caused you to lose employment, requiring increased assistance
from your ex-spouse. You may be the paying spouse who has suffered changes
which prevent you from providing the support you originally agreed to.

Both child support and spousal support obligations can be modified through
the courts. When child support modification is sought, the courts will
consider it in light of what is in the best interests of the child. Spousal
support can also be modified through the courts if you can show the occurrence
of a substantial change in your circumstances which justifies such a modification.
In either case, you will need a competent Staten Island divorce lawyer
to manage your case.
