Requesting a Post-Divorce Modification in NY
In the event of a substantial change in circumstances after divorce, either party has the right to file a petition for a modification of a divorce order. A substantial change in circumstances is an unanticipated and involuntary change in the financial, emotional, or physical condition of one or both parents, which warrants a modification of particular elements of a divorce order.
Changes in circumstances that could warrant a post-divorce modification include:
- A relocation of the parents or children
- Loss of job for the parent paying child support
- Significant increase in income for the parent receiving child support or spousal maintenance
- Remarriage of the parent receiving spousal support
- Abuse or neglect of a child by one of the parents
