Modification and Enforcement of Child Custody
Guidance from Our Westchester County & White Plains Lawyers
Whether you are seeking to modify an existing order or agreement, or whether
you are seeking to oppose someone else’s request to modify, it is
important that you have a skilled Westchester child custody lawyer to
protect you rights from the beginning.
With more than 50 years of combined experience, the White Plains family
law and divorce attorney at our firm have regularly appeared before Judges
in the Supreme Courts and Family Courts of Westchester County (including
White Plains Family Court, New Rochelle Family Court and Yonkers Family
Court), Putnam, Rockland, the Bronx, and Orange Counties. We utilize this
experience to your advantage both inside and outside the courtroom.
Making the Modification
When the circumstances surrounding your existing child custody and visitation
divorce order or Family Court Order change the law allows you to petition
the Family Court and Divorce Court for a modification of the original
order or agreement.
Not just any change is sufficient to modify a child custody and visitation
arrangement. The change of circumstance must be significant enough that
it affects the best interests of the children.
Enforcement of Orders and Agreements
Both parties in a divorce or in a Family Court case must adhere to the
terms of a Court Order or your settlement agreement. Often, parties develop
problems with child visitation days and times. In other instances, payment
or receipt of child support enforcement becomes a point of contention
between the parties. When it becomes necessary to compel the other party
to follow the Court Order or settlement agreement, you should have lawyers
who are accomplished and have the necessary experience to protect your
rights. The Westchester County family law and divorce lawyers at our firm
will enforce your rights through various enforcement methods including
motions for contempt.
