Chelmsford Lawyer for Child Support Modifications

Divorce arrangements are a snapshot of the needs of spouses and their children during the time frame of the divorce. While judges and divorcing parties make an effort to arrive at a lasting, durable solution, the needs of parents and children often change after the divorce is finalized.

If your divorce decree is in need of modification in order to protect your interests or those of your children, it is important to understand your rights. At the Law Office of Peter V. Lawlor, PC, we handle family law modification for clients in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, offering representation from a Chelmsford child support modification attorney with more than 30 years of experience.

Helping to Modify All Applicable Family Law Arrangements

We provide personalized representation to our clients from an accessible lawyer who strives to keep his clients informed about their rights throughout the entire legal process. We pursue modification to all applicable family law arrangements, including:

In order for a post-decree modification to be granted, it is required for the petitioner to demonstrate a substantial change in his or her needs or financial circumstances. This could include a job loss, change in medical or educational needs, changing needs of a child or a substantial increase in income. Judges will consider all factors to determine if a substantial change in circumstances has occurred and whether it is in the best interest of the parties for modification to take place.
