If you are interested in modifying an existing divorce decree, the website for the state of New Jersey Department of Health provides helpful information. Oftentimes after a divorce, one or both parties have the desire to make a change to a preexisting decree, whether it is a decree for:
- Child custody
- Child support
Modifications to decrees are typically wanted when circumstances change, and this can occur in a number of ways. If one parent remarries, child custody, child support, or alimony modification may be desired. If an environment becomes unsuitable for children to live in, a child custody modification may be granted.
If you desire a divorce decree, you can seek assistance at the Superior Court of New Jersey Records Center. For more information about divorce decrees, click here, or call the Records Center at (609) 421-6100.
