When an individual goes to family court in Rockland County, the judge will often issue a legally binding order once a decision is made regarding the matter at hand. All parties involved are legally obligated to follow this order as the court intended them to. Of course, when the court makes a decision on the behalf of others, they will do so based on the current circumstances surrounding the individuals involved. When the circumstances of those involved do change, the order may need to be modified. It is important to be aware that a lot of the time, modifying a court order isn’t necessarily easy. The court will always want to make sure there is a good reason to modify the order.
Some of the orders that frequently have requests for modification include child support orders, spousal maintenance orders, child custody orders, and visitation orders. If the individual who wishes to make a change to an order can prove that it is necessary, it may be granted. If the matter is related to a child, the individual must prove that it is in the best interest of the child. If you have faced unforeseen changes and need a court order modified, contact us today.
