At Your Side When Life Changes

After your divorce is finalized, you may still run into family legal matters that need to be addressed. For instance, if your former spouse fails to live up to his or her obligations under the divorce decree, further legal intervention may be necessary to enforce existing court orders. Additionally, a substantial or material change in circumstances may necessitate a post-divorce modification to child custody, parenting time (visitation) or child support obligations.

In Massachusetts, modifications of child custody and/or visitation are not easily obtained, and issuance depends on two factors. First, the desired change to the existing court order must be in the child's best interests. Second, the party seeking the modification must show that there has been a material and substantial change of circumstances since the prior judgment was entered.

A loss of employment, remarriage, a significant increase or decrease in salary, and the need to relocate to a different state are common reasons why an individual may seek to modify the terms of a divorce judgment. Modification cases can be complicated and highly contentious. Whether you seek to bring or defend against a modification request, our skilled lawyer can protect your rights and interests.


Frustration and financial difficulty can result when one party fails to abide by the terms of a divorce decree. We represent clients who are requesting or resisting the enforcement of child custody, parenting time (visitation), child support and alimony orders. Whether we are able to negotiate an advantageous resolution, or it is necessary to file contempt charges, you can count on us for zealous representation both in and out of the courtroom.
