Can I Use The Divorce Settlement To Change An Earlier Family Court Decision In Brooklyn?

Your divorce settlement technically entitles you to a fresh review of the issues that were decided in Brooklyn Family Court in the past, but in practice, if there is no significant change in circumstances or new information to be provided, the judge in your divorce case will typically let the previous orders stand.

Amending a past order, like the amount of child support, can be handled in cases where you’ve lost or changed jobs, or the income balance between you and your spouse has shifted.

In divorces in Brooklyn, it’s widely accepted that pretty much everything is negotiable if the parties are interested in those negotiations.

If there are orders from a prior Family Court ruling that no longer reflect reality, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you make the best case possible to get the outcome you deserve.
