Making Modifications to Alimony, Child Custody & More

Trying to stay atop alimony and child support payments when your income declines after a divorce can put immense stress on finances. Feeling as if you are not spending a fair amount of time with your child after a separation will put all the more strain on your emotional wellbeing. When you believe there have been changes since your divorce and your agreement cannot and should not be maintained for much longer, it is time to start thinking about how a post-judgment modification can help.

Rozin | Golinder Law and our Monmouth County divorce attorneys are here to make certain you know all about your rights in a post-judgment case. We focus our practice on everything from child custody changes to pursuing a decrease in the alimony you may no longer be able to pay. With our representation, you can be confident on the road ahead.

Why You Should Ask for a Post-Judgment Modification

A court can approve a post-judgment modification if you have experienced significant life changes (a change in circumstances) since your divorce was finalized.

Examples of a significant change in circumstance include:

  • Children are being neglected or are in harm’s way
  • Children’s grades start to suffer
  • A parent is never home during their time with the children
  • The current custody arrangement is no longer in the children’s best interests
  • Job loss
  • Disability, debilitation, or severe illness
  • Retirement
  • Income reduction
  • Ex-spouse’s income increase
  • Ex-spouse remarries
  • Ex-spouse cohabitates with a significant other
  • Necessary childcare costs increase

When you file for a post-judgment modification, the court will be concerned with how significant the change of circumstances you are alleging is. In other words, simply wishing to change your agreement because you no longer like it is not enough.

If the change was not significant, then the petition could be rejected. For example, if your income decreased by 5% or less, it might not be dramatic enough to warrant an increase in the child support you receive. With regards to a modification in custody or parenting time, as always, the court will only rule in your child’s best interests.

Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”

    Pranav G.

  • Forever Grateful

    “Professional and absolutely down to earth, Mrs Rosin-Golinder and her knowledgeable staff listened to my needs and crafted a prenuptial agreement that will not only act as a safety net for my business but as piece of mind if thing don’t go as planned. With my first marriage around the corner, my first child on the way and preparing for my first mobilization , it was an amazing feeling to have something I feared and was very very uncertain of, turn out for the best. Thank you is most certainly an understatement but for the sake of expression..... THANK YOU. You definitely have a client for life. Two thumbs up LIZ!!!”
