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 65 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.
