A Trusted Firm For More Than 70 Years

Modifications And Enforcements Attorney

Changes in the economy, changes in job opportunities, the growth of children and potential plans to relocate to another state are all sources of post-divorce disputes. Although family court judges issue a final judgment in a divorce, circumstances may change over time. For that reason, many women and men need help from a family law attorney after a divorce has become final to enforce a prior court order or to seek a modification of the divorce judgment based upon a substantial change in circumstances.

The law firm of Nigro, Pettepit & Lucas, LLP, in Wakefield and Newburyport is committed to effectively solving family law problems on your behalf. Post-divorce disputes are no exception. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and well-respected trial lawyers who will zealously advocate for your best interests.

On Your Side Since ’45

Our firm can help you resolve your disputes in and out of the courtroom. Because we are seasoned trial attorneys, our advice to you always incorporates the insights we have gained about the legal system, particularly as that legal system operates in our own locality.

For that reason, we are successful in resolving many post-divorce problems that arise, including:

  • Child support modifications
  • Modifications to alimony orders or agreements
  • Alimony or child support enforcement actions
  • Family court contempt hearings related to support
  • Custody and visitation modifications, including relocations

It is often tempting for divorced couples to verbally make changes to how a divorce judgment will be followed after a noncustodial parent changes jobs, or changes in the needs of the child make a visitation plan unmanageable. But the judgment remains in place, and disputes can erupt. You can rely on our experience and integrity in solving family law problems to protect your post-divorce rights.
