Orange County Child Custody & Child Support Modifications Attorney Helping Clients in Goshen, Woodbury, & New Paltz, NY

The law offices of Jonathan D. Katz provides legal services for clients seeking to modify their child custody, child support or other support obligations in Orange County, New York.

Understanding how Orange County judges view requests for modification is an important factor when filing a successful petition. As a New York family law attorney for more than 25 years, I know the court procedures and the expectations. That means you won’t pay for mistakes or a learning curve that often result from inexperience in the appropriate courts.

Knowledge of the Orange County Court System and Judges Makes a Difference

There are several factors an Orange County judge will take into consideration when deciding to accept a petition for a modification.

Some of the common factors include:

  • Child’s desire to modify the original parenting schedule
  • Job schedule change for either the parent
  • Significant change of income for either the parent
  • Physical relocation of either the parent
  • Health concerns for the child and parents
  • Educational opportunities for the child

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
