What You Should Know About Post-Judgment Modifications in New Jersey

In the months or years following a divorce, you may find that your life does not look the same as it did when your divorce agreement was initially established. More recently, COVID-19 has had a serious impact on all our lives. As such, you may be thinking about modifying the terms of your existing divorce agreement. If you and your former spouse cannot agree on the terms of that modification on your own, you should hire an experienced New Jersey divorce attorney who will assist you in filing the appropriate application with the Court.

What You Should Know About Post-Judgment Modifications in New Jersey

Some types of post-judgment modifications that you may seek include:

  • An upward or downward modification of an alimony obligation
  • An upward or downward modification of child support
  • A change in a custody arrangement
  • A change or modification to a parenting time arrangement
  • Emancipation of a child
  • Relocation application

When filing an application with the Court to modify an existing agreement, the moving party seeking a modification bears the burden of demonstrating changed circumstances. It is important to note that Courts have consistently rejected requests for modification based on circumstances which are only temporary, or which are expected but have not occurred. As such, hiring an attorney with the experience and expertise in these situations is crucial-–contact Aronsohn, Weiner, Salerno & Kaufman today to schedule a consultation if you are looking for post-judgment relief.
