Orange County Modifications
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
Presenting a successful petition or successfully arguing against a modification request requires clear facts and legal support based on past Orange County petitions and case law. I work vigorously to ensure that the modification issue is resolved as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, without the need for litigation, whenever possible.
