Modifying your child support obligation in New Jersey.

New Jersey Child Support Modification Lawyers

Modifications to child support can be made, even after a divorce is finalized. The needs of the children involved can change with time, like needs in shelter, schooling, food, and health care to name a few. Because needs can change, New Jersey child support laws permit parents to have modifications made to their child support. The parent can request this modification due to increase in need for the child or a change in income from either you or your ex-spouse. Once a need for child support modification has been established, one can file for the modification with the Superior Court. A judge will then make a decision about the modification and make the appropriate adjustments. This could include an increase or decrease in child support payments or even terminated due to the child being emancipated.

If you are looking to modify a child support order, or wish to fight against a modification of a child support order, the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., has a team of New Jersey child support modification attorneys ready to defend your rights.

How to enforce child support in New Jersey.

New Jersey Child Support Enforcement Attorneys

While we would all like to believe that once a divorce is finalized that everything is done and over with, this is sometimes not the case if your ex-spouse is not following the terms in the agreed arrangement. One of the terms that is usually fought over and creates additional difficulty is child support and child support payments. If you find your ex-spouse is not holding up their end of the bargain and supporting your child, the child support order may need to be enforced. It is recommended that you seek legal counsel from an experienced and knowledgeable New Jersey child support enforcement lawyer to help you see if you can enforce the child support order and to help finally receive any missing child support payments.

Family courts in New Jersey are known to strongly enforce child support orders, and your ex-spouse may be incarcerated or have his or her financial assets invaded in order to pay the child support. If you are the one facing this kind of strong enforcement, your property could be seized, you could have tax refunds intercepted and even wage garnishments added to your paycheck.

Monmouth County Divorce Attorney helps client win Pendente Lite Motion

P.M. Monmouth County Divorce Case

In this divorce case, the other side filed a pendente lite motion for counsel fees and spousal support.  When our Monmouth County Divorce Attorneys fight back against a pendente lite motion, we fight back hard!  With regard to the spousal support, we argued that the wife moved out voluntarily and that she had a roommate that helped to defray her cost.  The wife’s attorney had no answer to these allegations and as a result, the court held this against her.  The pendente lite support ordered was much less than what the other side was requesting.  In addition, the wife was seeking $5,000 in counsel fees.  Our lawyers also fought back hard against this and the court denied the entire claim.  The wife was not awarded any counsel fees at all.  All in all, a very successful motion.

If you need help with a pendente lite motion, call the team of tough, aggressive Monmouth County Divorce Attorneys today.  You can meet with our attorneys in our Freehold or Tinton Falls offices by appointment only.
