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

Common divorce agreement issues that can be modified include:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Visitation schedules
