Long Island Post Divorce Modification Lawyers
Nassau County Relocation Attorneys
The decisions that you and your ex-spouse made during the divorce process may not always meet your needs or those of your children. As time passes and as your needs change, it may be time to seek post-divorce modification of existing court orders.
The attorneys at the Glen Cove, New York, law offices of Polin, Prisco & Villafane can help. We can guide clients through post-divorce modification processes related to many different family law issues:
- Child custody and visitation

- Spousal support (spousal maintenance or alimony)
We pride ourselves on making ourselves easily accessible to every client. Our emphasis on client service allows us to get the full picture on the legal challenges each client faces and the solutions that best meet their unique needs.
If a custodial parent wishes to relocate within New York State or outside of the state, it is important for them to talk with an attorney before the move. The court that granted your divorce retains power — or jurisdiction — over that order. If the move is significant, a custodial parent must get the court's permission before the move. Parents who relocate without court permission may be putting their custodial status in jeopardy. At Polin, Prisco & Villafane, our lawyers represent custodial parents seeking to relocate and noncustodial parents opposing such a move.
Modifying Child Custody and Visitation Agreements
If your current child custody and visitation agreement is not meeting your needs, an application can be made to modify the terms of the custody agreement. In order to modify a child custody agreement, it will be necessary to show a change in your circumstances. Additionally, courts will always look to the best interests of the child when deciding whether or not to modify the terms of a custody agreement.
