  • Child support: In order to modify your child support, there are certain requirements that must be met. You must prove that there has been a substantial change in the circumstances since the last court order of child support addressing the issue sought to be changed. The change must also be in the best interest of the minor child.
  • Alimony and spousal support: A substantial and/or permanent change in your former spouse’s life situation may be considered in an alimony modification claim. These changes may include remarriage, cohabitation or change in employment. Alimony will not be modified for the supporting spouse because of early retirement, quitting of a job, or getting purposefully fired from a job.
  • Parental Responsibility and Timesharing: Changes in work schedules, relocation and other factors can impact a parent’s ability to spend time with their children. Elaine M. Simon can help you request a modification to your current parenting arrangement.
