Massachusetts Judgment Modification Appeal Attorney

Divorce and parenting judgments are not intended to last forever. Certain terms of your prior judgment are reviewable as a result of life changes.

A modification action seeks to change or terminate one or more of the terms of an existing court order.

Like your original divorce or parenting judgment, your modification judgment will become final if not challenged by appeal. The modified terms will become the starting point for future disputes. Contact (978-846-5184) MA Modification Appeal Attorney William Driscoll for an assessment of your case.

Modifications can be quite complex and can stifle or ruin the future of individuals and businesses. Judges do not always take proper account of tax effects, business profit shares, benefits and other "expectations."

Modification appeals can be very fact intensive, can include a battle of expert opinion, and require a keen attention to detail. The ramifications of each case is typically far reaching. Ultimately the decision is one of discretion for the judge. But judges make mistakes.
