Divorce Modifications In Massachusetts
Assistance From Our Framingham Divorce Lawyer
Sometimes the agreements you made upon your divorce become void due to changing circumstances. Both spousal support payments and child support payments can be revisited and modified to fit the new needs of your family. In many cases, even child custody arrangements can be renegotiated and altered to suit the best interests of the children. In order for your new arrangement to be considered valid, you need to ensure it is approved. Now is the time to seek representation from our Framingham family law attorney who is highly experienced in family law counsel.
Case evaluations are available at our eastern Massachusetts office.
When Can I Request Divorce Modifications?
When you and your former spouse separated, the settlement was made based on your income, health, and other lifestyle requirements at the time. These circumstances are subject to change, and the law provides opportunities for a settlement revisit should your needs increase or decrease.
Reasons you may need to revisit the terms of your arrangement include:
- Loss of job
- Change in job
- Increase in salary
- Anticipated move of a parent
- New disability in either parent
- Decrease in salary
- Accusations of neglect for custodial parent
- Sudden medical emergency for a child
- Criminal activity on the part of either parent
- Tense relationship between parent and child
