Routine and Exceptional Modifications
Over time, one’s life situation and finances can change dramatically. Whether you are entitled to a modification of child support or maintenance is often a complex legal question which depends upon the specific language of your divorce agreement. If you have no agreement, but a judgment after trial the standard for modification is less onerous, in many cases, than a modification of an agreement. In these cases, Angela Scarlato & Associates, P.C. will carefully review all your documents and advise you as to your chances of success in seeking a modification.
Some situations such as a proposed parental relocation are far more complex and potentially contentious. Depending on circumstances, our lawyers may be able to negotiate with the other party to achieve a workable and mutually acceptable solution. But if there is no easy answer, these types of disputes will likely lead to litigation. Angela Scarlato & Associates, P.C. will assertively represent your interests in court in order to achieve your goal.
