Custody-Visitation modifications



If you want to change a custody judgment, you must be able to show that there is a significant change of circumstances since the custody order was entered and  that your desired change is in the child’s best interest. Even if you are able to prove a substantial change, the order will not be modified without also showing that the change is in the child’s best interest. Ardizoni v. Raymond, 40 Mass. App. Ct. 734 (1996) (judge’s finding that a material and substantial change in circumstances occurred was not clearly erroneous, but appellate court found no evidence from which the judge could have properly concluded that a split physical custody arrangement would be in the children’s best interest). G.L. c. 208, § 28, 29 (divorce); G.L. c. 209C, § 20 (paternity); G.L. c. 209, § 32 (Separate Support).
