Can I change my divorce settlement?

Lepis v. Lepis was a 1980 case decided by the New Jersey Supreme Court which stands for the proposition that child support, alimony, visitation/parenting time, and related issues are subject to review and possible modification, at the request of either party, whenever there has been a substantial change in circumstances. This means that after the divorce, sometimes people can go back to Court to ask a judge to modify terms of the divorce judgment when there has been a significant change in circumstances. The Lepis case is as significant today as it was when it was first decided nearly twenty years ago. Largely as a result of Lepis, our law office represents many people who are already divorced but who have ongoing issues that need to be re-addressed by a Court.
