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.
