Central New York Divorce Modifications Lawyers
Change is inevitable, and no matter how far in advance you make provisions for certain eventualities, chances are, changes will need to be made to the financial and domestic arrangements you made at the time of your divorce. Change can also occur through the duration of your marriage. Preparing for this at the outset by devising a prenuptial agreement before you say “I do”, can help you through the possibility of change in the future.
Kalil & Eisenhut, LLC in Utica, New York, works with clients on either end of a marriage by providing legal services designed to prepare for and respond to changes that may occur. To find out how we can help you, contact us today for a free initial consultation.
It is often difficult to make changes in the custodial arrangement for your children. Yet circumstances such as substance abuse, relocation, mental instability, a serious medical condition, or some change in the way your child interacts with one of the parents, may give the court sufficient pause to consider a modification. If there has been a significant change in your life, your ex-spouse’s or your children’s, call us to discuss the possibility of modifying your child custody agreement.
Our firm also assists clients who (or whose former spouses) have undergone significant economic change. If you have recently lost your job or if your ex-spouse has recently been promoted or has taken a better job, you may be able to modify your maintenance or support agreement. Please note, however, that changes to maintenance specifically, are very difficult to obtain, and there must be some change that is "unforeseen or unforeseeable".
Protecting significant family assets, avoiding the mistakes you made in a first marriage or protecting your own investments — these are all reasons people may choose to have a prenuptial agreement drafted. At Kalil & Eisenhut, LLC, we are happy to discuss the particulars of your case and help you draft an agreement that helps you maintain control over your interests in the event of divorce.
Marital Separation Agreements
When you file for dissolution and are able to amicably work out the details to your divorce, a marital “separation agreement” is drafted and filed. The marital “separation agreement” will encompass “everything else” that a Court can do in a divorce proceeding, except for the granting of the divorce, which only a Court can do. “Everything else” includes child support, child custody, equitable distribution, maintenance and other incidentals to dissolution. A marital “separation agreement” allows you to retain control of the divorce, instead of letting the court make the decisions for you.
Resolving family law and divorce matters is never easy, but it does not have to be marked by hostility, anxiety or opposition. At the Utica-based law firm of Kalil & Eisenhut, LLC, we encourage our clients to take advantage of peaceable ways of resolving marital dissolution matters. This has been the cornerstone of our practice. For more information or to schedule a free initial consultation, contact us today.
