Post Judgement Matters

Manhattan Family Law Attorneys Practiced In Post Judgment Matters

Obtaining a divorce agreement or arriving at a settlement does not ensure that you will never need to revisit your post-divorce arrangements in the future. Life is unpredictable and there are numerous reasons you may require a talented divorce attorney to help you resolve post judgment matters.

The circumstances surrounding child custody or visitation arrangements may change; you may need assistance from a Manhattan family law attorney to enforce payment of support arrears you are legally owed; and a loss of work, decrease in income, or increase in childcare expenses may elicit a need to modify your child support agreement.

The Manhattan family law attorneys at Miller Zeiderman & Wiederkehr are well versed in post judgement matters, including:

  • Custody Modification
  • Visitation Modification
  • Enforcement of Support Arrears
  • Support Modification

Manhattan Child Custody Modification

Orders to modify an existing child custody agreement are often difficult to obtain and require assistance from an experienced Manhattan family law attorney. The New York Family Court strives to protect the best interests of children in cases of divorce and separation, so a custody modification is only possible if it can be proven that it is the best option for promoting the physical or emotional wellbeing of the child.

Obtaining Visitation Modification

A visitation schedule is an important agreement in any separation or divorce case involving children and may pertain to the non-custodial parent or grandparents. Our Manhattan family law attorneys will resolve visitation issues and seek a modification if necessary to protect the best interests of your children.

Enforcement of Support Arrears

The need to enforce support arrears is crucial to the financial stability of custodial parents and, unfortunately, an all-too common problem in post judgment matters. There are several enforcement methods employed by the New York State Division of Child Support Enforcement, including driver’s license suspension, denying passport renewal, and a federal tax income offset to recover some of the overdue payments.

Securing a Support Modification

Just as the financial obligations of raising a child may fluctuate throughout the course of a marriage, circumstances may change throughout the lives of children of divorce or their parents that require a reconsideration of child support. Miller Zeiderman & Wiederkehr will assist you in preparing the necessary filings to help secure a post judgment support modification that will ensure you are receiving or paying a fair amount of child support.
