Modification Lawyers in Nashua
Effectively Helping You Modify an Existing Court Order
When an individual's circumstances substantially change, the terms of an existing court order related to child custody, child support, or alimony may also change.
At Bernazzani Law, our attorneys help clients who wish to modify the terms of existing family law-related court orders. We also provide legal help to clients who need to enforce existing orders or to block another party's request for modification. For over 25 years, our firm has helped clients achieve their legal goals, and we can help you, too.
What Are the Grounds for a Modification?
Parents often seek to modify child custody and visitation terms in situations, including:
- Parental relocation for work
- A child is subjected to a harmful environment, such as an abusive or neglectful home
- One parent interferes with the other parent's residential responsibilities, such as refusing to share access to the child
- Both parents agree that the current order's terms are not working, and they agree to change them
- A child wishes to change his or her living arrangements (if sufficiently mature)
Likewise, there are circumstances in which parents and/or divorced spouses can seek to modify the terms of a child support or alimony order. Often, these modifications are sought when one parent or former spouse experiences a substantial increase or decrease in financial status due to job promotion, unemployment, financial windfall, medical emergency, or some other reason.
It is important to understand that modifications are almost never automatic, even when parties agree. Nevertheless, judges most frequently grant modifications when parties agree to the terms in advance of a court hearing.
