New Jersey Lawyers Helping You Modify Your Divorce Judgment and Obligations

Representation across the state for obtaining — and opposing —post-divorce motions

Life goes on after a divorce — circumstances, jobs, relationships and other situations change — and what you and your former spouse agreed to at the time of the judgment may no longer apply. When things are no longer the way they were, the attorneys at Murano & Roth, LLC, can assist you in changing — or fighting changes to — your divorce judgment.

The Murano & Roth team has significant experience handling post-divorce motions involving child support, child custody, spousal maintenance and any other family law matter. We assess your situation, discuss your options and counsel you about whether and how to proceed.

Child support modifications in NJ

New Jersey law requires a substantial and ongoing change in the personal circumstances of either party to approve a modification of child support. When a modification is made, the family law judge typically orders a modest increase or decrease in support obligations for such changes as a big raise, lengthy unemployment, an inheritance, medical expenses or educational expenses.

Alimony modifications in NJ

New Jersey law requires a substantial and ongoing change in the personal circumstances of either party to approve a modification of alimony or spousal support. Absent an non- modification provision, the family law judge can order termination of alimony, an increase in alimony, or decrease in alimony for such changes as a big raise, lasting unemployment, an inheritance, medical expenses or educational expenses.

We are powerful adversaries, and we protect your interests by ensuring that the court has full and accurate financial information before ruling on a modification motion.

Our divorce attorneys also represent clients in petitions to terminate child support or alimony.

Custody and visitation modifications

We have considerable experience dealing with modifications to visitation and physical custody of children for a variety of reasons, including the following:

  • Changes in work schedules
  • Desire for shared custody or increased parenting time
  • Child's desire to live with the other parent
  • Allegations of substance abuse or physical or emotional abuse of a child
  • Relocation of one parent (out of state or within New Jersey)

In actions for modification of custody or visitation, a court considers many factors, including whether a change is in the best interests of the children. Because we regularly practice in family court, we understand the standards and expectations of many family court judges in our region.

Keep in mind, though, that the New Jersey legislature is considering proposals to modify or change the alimony rules, child support laws and amounts to be paid. As such, the amount you are entitled to today could be more or less in the near future.
