Newton Divorce Modification Attorney

Modifying Divorce Agreements After Finalization in Boston

Do you need to modify an existing order of child support, child custody, alimony, or visitation? In order to do so, you must have a material change of circumstances to request a modification. At The Halks Firm, we are skilled at presenting a request for modification or defending an agreement if your ex is requesting something that is unreasonable.

Do I Have Grounds to Modify my Divorce?

Commonly modified issues include alimony, health insurance, and child-related issues (such as payment of expenses, including college expenses). It is advised you submit your modification to the court for approval, even if you and your ex-spouse agree.

Along with filing a complaint of modification, you may also be able to file a “motion for reconsideration” or a “motion to set aside.” The former will ask the judge to review the decisions made and make changes. These can be due to newly discovered evidence, a legal mistake, or fraud. On the other hand, a motion to set aside can ask the judge to suspend a custody or support order.

Examples of material changes of circumstances include:

  • A major move
  • A job change that affects the custody agreement
  • A change in income that affects a support order
  • The remarriage or cohabitation of a spouse receiving alimony
  • A child becomes emancipated and no longer needs support
  • The needs of a child become greater (due to factors such as disease or disability)
  • Loss of health insurance

At The Halks Firm, we provide proven legal representation for those seeking modifications to divorce. Contact (781) 995-0107 today.
