Jackson, NJ Modifications Attorney
Jackson Family Law Attorney Providing Support and Guidance
The court is well aware that some of the orders in place at the time of the final divorce decree may need to be adjusted in the future. Change is inherent in any life. As children mature and their needs change, or a parent's work schedule changes, the
child custody and visitation plan may require some rearranging to accommodate everyone's schedule and allow parenting time. In some cases you and your ex-spouse may simply discuss the situation and come to a new agreement. It is important to follow this up by having it entered into the court's records. A
Jackson divorce lawyer can explain your legal rights and guide you through the process.

spousal support may need to be increased or decreased based upon changed financial conditions.
