Child Support Modifications

If your circumstances have changed significantly since the time that your last child support order was entered, you may be able to obtain a child support modification. Attorney Philip A. Greenberg can perform a child support calculation on your behalf using the New York or New Jersey child support guidelines to determine if you are paying too much support or not receiving a sufficient amount of support in accordance with the law. He also has experience in cases in which a client is seeking a child support deviation based on unique circumstances.

Child Custody Modifications

There are situations in which a change of custody is warranted. Is your child's well-being jeopardized by the current custody award? Are there concerns about abuse, parental neglect or chemical dependency? Has a custodial parent repeatedly violated your right to have court-ordered parenting time with your child? If these or other factors are at issue, contact attorney Philip A. Greenberg to determine if you may have a basis to obtain a change of custody.

Parenting Time Modifications

Do you need to modify an existing parenting time schedule to accommodate changes to your work schedule or your child's schedule? Are there other reasons why a modification of the existing parenting time schedule is in your child's best interests? If so, contact attorney Philip A. Greenberg.

Spousal Support Modifications

Have you been laid off from work? Do you need to cut back on your work hours due to a serious medical condition? Has your spouse who is receiving spousal support re-married? If these or other significant changes have occurred, which impact your ability to pay support or your need to receive support, you may be entitled to a spousal support modification.
