Freehold and East Brunswick Lawyer for Divorce Modifications

Modifications of Court Order in New Jersey

Once a divorce order is in place, you are obligated to comply with all terms or face enforcement or you could face serious legal problems. If you have a significant change in circumstances, such as loss of a job, remarriage, the birth of another child, or reduced income from work, the court will often approve a modification. In some cases, the modification is sought due to the changed needs of a child, or cases in which neglect or abuse is taking place. At my firm, the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC, I serve as counsel in all family law matters, including post-decree modifications.

As a trial lawyer and litigator, my goal is to help my clients to successfully modify a court order to resolve these difficult issues as quickly and efficiently as is possible. With nearly two decades of experience, and having worked in some of the most well-known law firms in the country as a litigator, I have gained a great insight into case development and presentation and what it takes to get a positive outcome in court.

Child Support, Spousal Support, Visitation & Custody Modifications

When a court order is in place that requires certain payments to be made, such as child custody, spousal support, or visitation, any failure to comply is extremely dangerous, as you can be charged with contempt of court, as well as face legal action in an effort to collect overdue payments. Your wages could be garnished, any tax refund paid to the other party and other legal actions that could make your life difficult. Even if you have made a personal arrangement with your former spouse or relationship partner, you are subject to legal action. It is advised that any changes in arrangements are approved through the court. This could include a request to move away, if your job or other personal life matter makes this the right decision for you.

What type of modification do you need?

If there was any fraud or failure to disclose in financial matters in the divorce, a legal action can be initiated. This could include cases in which the other party hiding other assets, or similar situation. In order to modify the amount you are under court order to pay in child support or alimony, the court will expect you to provide full documentation and evidence that you have a substantial change in income, whether due to a change in your job, a loss of employment, or other change. If one parent is putting the child(ren) at risk of harm, through neglect, alcohol or drug addiction or other dangerous situation, a custody or visitation order can be modified, but the case must be presented with clear and convincing evidence to support the request. The court is hesitant to modify an existing order and your case must be presented both professionally and persuasively.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.
    - Former Client
    "An invaluable asset to anyone"
    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.

    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
