Legal Questions & Answers


A:
It depends, and I would have to read the Settlement Agreement in your divorce to learn more. Certain language in Settlement Agreements can make altering them more difficult. Was the child support established by the Probate & Family Court using the child support guidelines? How did you arrive at the amount of alimony? Are you working now? Your really need to consult an experienced Massachusetts divorce attorney to discuss the details. Good luck.




A:
The best method is for both you and your wife to fill out a court financial form (I can send them to you or you can download them from our Web site), and figure out precisely what the income and expenses are for your wife and your children, and for you and the home where you are living. Then try to work out a fair and informal arrangement between you and your wife. When you decide to file for divorce you or your wife may file what are called “Temporary Orders” for support. However, you should plan carefully for Temporary Orders as they can often become the basis of a permanent order in a divorce settlement.
