First of all, if there's an issue with jQuery like $ is not defined then you need to use jQuery instead of $. Your new code will be

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

Now, if you need a jQuery version other than the one WP uses. You can deregister and enqueue your specific jQuery again. Add this to your functions.php file

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', function(){
    wp_dequeue_script( 'jquery' );
    wp_deregister_script( 'jquery' );

    wp_register_script( 'jquery', 'URL_OF_YOUR_NEW_JQUERY_FILE', array(), NULL, false );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
