Modification of Family Law Orders
Do you need to modify an existing court order?
Final judgments of the dissolution of a marriage cannot account for the
many changes that will likely occur in the future. Under Florida law,
provisions are made regarding "substantial changes in circumstances"
of a divorce agreement. Such laws provide grounds for changing a parenting
plan, time-sharing schedule, and increasing, decreasing, terminating,
or modifying the terms of a child support or alimony order. If you want
to find out how modification can benefit you, speak with one of our
family law attorneys at once.
Modifications are most common for
child support and
alimony issues after
divorce. They are often requested when a change in either party's income occurs.
It is the burden of the person desiring to enact the change in the divorce
agreement to file the appropriate Supplemental Petition for Modification.
No modification will occur if a petition is not filed. No matter what
the circumstances, we encourage you to seek legal guidance before taking
any further action. We offer
free case evaluations to help you understand your situation.

orders to bring them up to date so that they accurately reflect the client's
current situation. Our approach to modification cases involves learning
about the change that has occurred in your life to require a modification.
We can explain what evidence is needed to prove that these changes exist
and are adequate to warrant modification.
Modification actions are some of the most common family law matters that
