ESSEX COUNTY - CHILD SUPPORT/SPOUSAL SUPPORT

September court date

GT divorced her ex-spouse in 2017 and the court entered a child/spousal support order. The ex-spouse retired earlier this year and has now filed a motion seeking a downward modification of that order based on his retirement and other changes. Ex-spouse is represented by counsel and GT would greatly benefit from also having counsel in order to level the playing field. GT does communicate in English but prefers French Creole, if possible.
