Taunton Attorneys Who Aggressively Pursue Justice in Divorce Modification
Child support can typically be changed only upon a showing of material and substantial change in circumstances, such as a significant increase or decrease in your income. For instance, the loss of one parent's job may require the modification of child support. Alimony can also be modified or terminated based upon either your marital agreement and/or upon a showing of material and significant changes in circumstances for either party. The recent revisions to Massachusetts alimony laws have substantially changed the landscape. Talk to our family law attorneys to see how you can modify your alimony payments. There are several situations that may give rise to a request to modify a child support or visitation order, including:
- Relocation of one of the parents; relocation could require a change of custody or at the very least a change in visitation to accommodate the parents' and child's schedule.
- A change in work schedule of a parent may give rise to a new schedule for practical purposes.
- An unsafe environment may also give rise to a modification of a child custody or visitation. For example, if a new boyfriend or girlfriend uses drugs, is abusive or presents a danger to the children, then it may be possible to obtain a change in child custody or supervised visitation.
Modifying child support or visitation can be some of the hardest of all cases presented before the Probate and Family Court. Our law firm will be prepared to provide tenacious advocacy and candid counsel at every step of the proceedings.
