Child Custody Modifications in Nassau County
Sometimes custody arrangements no longer work. If you would like to change your child custody order, you may petition the court for a modification. The two basic requirements for filing a modification petition include: 1) modifying the custody order must be in a child’s best interest, and 2) you must demonstrate that a substantial change has occurred.
You may be able to obtain a modification if:
- The medical condition of either parent has changed
- Either parent has a substance abuse problem
- The child’s parent has committed an act of domestic violence
- A parent needs to relocate with a child for employment purposes
- The home the child is living in has become unstable
- The child is suffering from abandonment or neglect
- A child who is over the age of 12 has requested a change
Regardless of your situation, our experienced divorce attorneys can review your case to determine if your arrangement can be modified. If so, we can help you file a petition and represent your child’s best interest in court.
How Are Child Support Orders Modified?
If your or your ex-spouse’s situation has changed, either one of you may be seeking a modification of a child support order.
There are three circumstances under which a court may modify a child support decree, including:
- There has been a substantial change to a parent’s income or the cost of raising a child
- Three years have passed since the order was issued or last modified
- There has been an involuntary change of 15% or more in either parent’s income
