Over 30 Years Experience Handling Post Judgment Divorce Modifications
Changes are inevitable in this life, and although divorce settlements, custody arrangements, & child support payments are designed to suit everyone’s needs as they are at the time of the divorce, things can change in the future making it difficult if not impossible to adhere to the original plan. In these cases, it may be necessary to seek post judgment modifications. Under Massachusetts law, there are ways you can seek modifications to orders when there is a significant and meaningful change in your circumstances. Any major event like unemployment, illness, or an injury may make a post judgment modification necessary. Attorney Bruce Watson can help you through this process.
Modification to a previous judgment or agreement.
Modifications can be made to a number of different orders and agreements, including those that involve child support, child custody, visitation, spousal support, or marital settlement agreements. There are many different situations that may warrant a modification of a previous judgment, including:
- A significant increase or decrease in either party’s income
- A job loss, job change or other event
- A parent’s desire or need to relocate
- A major change in the costs of caring for children, prompted by a medical problem or other event
Do you qualify for a modification?
If your circumstances have changed significantly, you should speak with Attorney Watson about the possibility of a post judgment modification. Not every situation is significant enough to qualify for a modification, but with a lawyer carefully examining the situation you may be able to take action to have the terms of your divorce or parenting agreement charged to better suit your current needs.
