Victim of domestic violence awarded child support modification

Clients Client M

New York Associates Jessie Jandovitz, Emily Posner, and Meghan Walters represented a pro bono client and victim of domestic violence in a child support modification case in Bronx Family Court. The client was seeking a child support modification and enforcement of the judicial order requiring the defendant to pay his outstanding child support obligations, which, at the time of the hearing, totaled over $1,000. The team negotiated a payment plan with the defendant under which he will pay an additional amount per week along with his standing obligation until he repays the outstanding amount. The matter was referred to Jones Day by inMotion.
