        Michael has helped me tremendously.  I’ve been going through a divorce for over a year now and he’s be there every step of the way.  If I needed to contact him out of business hours, he always answers right away or calls back in a timely manner.  My divorce was and still is very stressful.  He has kept me cool and calm the whole time.  I’ve had a lot of anxiety that he took away.  Very detailed and very relaxed person.  Made me feel so much more confident than I was before I stepped into his office.

        Practical Advice About Divorce Modifications in New York

        After a divorce or order, each parent might have gone through some very significant changes. One or the other might be a lot richer or poorer, someone might have suffered a health crisis or disability, either or both might have remarried. Even if nothing else has changed much, the children will be that much older, with the interests, needs and expenses that go along with growing up.  

        It’s not unusual for the financial and parental arrangements of a prior order or divorce to require some adjustment in future years. If you’re thinking about modifying your order of child support or custodial arrangements to meet significantly changed circumstances, or if you need legal advice about your ex’s recent modification request, experienced Rochester Divorce Attorney Michael D. Schmitt can advise you about your rights and responsibilities. Contact our dedicated Rochester Divorce Attorney for a free initial consultation about your legal options on either side of a modification proposal.

        “Mike will end all your distrust and annoyance associated with legal proceedings. He handled my divorce and did an amazing job keeping it out of court and getting me what I wanted. He was there to talk to the whole time and made me feel he was on my side by his comments and advice. He is now representing my girlfriend for her custody battle and he was the only lawyer we would contact to handle the case. He is truly a good person which is hard to find with people associated with the law in this country. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and for everything you are doing for my girlfriend.”
