Head’s up — MassLegalHelp is getting a new look!

At the beginning of March, we will be relaunching this website with a brand-new look. You may notice some things moved around, but our main content will stay the same. We hope the improved design will make it easier to find what you are looking for.


Where do we file our agreement to change an order or a judgment?

Produced by Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
Reviewed October 2019

File your packet of forms at the same Probate and Family Court that made the judgment or temporary order you want to change.

You can file your forms:

  • in person at the Registry of Probate office, or
  • by mailing them to the Probate and Family Court.

The Probate and Family Court website has the address of each courthouse.  Click the name of the court to get the address.
