When a divorce judgment or other family law orders are issued, no one can anticipate life changes that may later make them impossible to fulfill or detrimental to a child. In other situations, a parent’s financial success may justify an upward adjustment of support or a custodial parent may wish to move children out of state. New Jersey law contains specific requirements and procedures to address such matters.
