Modifying Child Support or Custody in New York

Court orders — especially those involving children — are not set in stone. Over time, circumstances may change, and it can become necessary to seek a modification. But it is important that you do not try to change your support or custody arrangement without court approval. With a modified order approved by the court, you can ensure your rights are protected now and into the future.

When you need to have a court order modified, turn to the attorneys at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP. Our lawyers are skilled at handling family law matters. We can help you seek or contest a modification, depending on your situation. We will aggressively protect your rights and the rights of your child at every stage of your case.

Obtaining a Modification of a Court Order

In order to obtain a modification to child custody, visitation or support, you must be able to show that there has been a change in circumstances. For a change in child support, this may include the long-term loss of employment or reduced pay. For a change in custody or visitation, a change may include a move out of state by one parent or a change in schedules.

Regardless of the change in circumstance in your case, we will work diligently to ensure that your custody or support order is up-to-date and able to protect your child's best interests into the future.

Contesting a Change to a Court Order

If the other parent is seeking a modification that infringes on your rights as a parent and is not in the best interests of your child, we can help you. We will stand by your side to ensure that your rights are protected. This includes handling requests for relocation, enforcement of a court order and other actions to ensure that your child receives the emotional and financial support he or she needs.
