A final divorce decree is not necessarily final. Circumstances in parties’ lives change, and court orders can change with them. In other situations, a party fails to live up to his or her obligations, requiring a change to or enforcement of a court order.

While a property settlement agreement cannot be altered for capricious reasons, courts will make changes when there are material changes in the circumstances of either party. Some of the common issues leading to modifications include remarriage, a parent moving, job promotions, additional children, substance or physical abuse, and cohabitation.
At Graziano & Flynn, P.C., we are committed to providing our clients with fair and informed assessment of their chances of getting post-judgment relief. While any aspect of a property settlement agreement can be modified, the most common areas where post-judgment relief is sought involve child custody and visitation, child support, and alimony. It is uncommon for courts to grant modifications involving the distribution of marital assets, except in situations where there was fraud in the disclosure of assets at the time the property settlement agreement went into effect.
When seeking post-judgment relief, it is important to recognize that a modification of one part of a divorce agreement may trigger a modification in another. For example, if alimony payments are altered as a result of a re-marriage, child support payments could be increased depending on the income levels of each parent. Our lawyers have the skill and knowledge required to guide clients through the post-judgment relief process.Contact Us to Modify a Divorce Decree in Gloucester, Camden, Burlington Counties or Anywhere in New Jersey
