Your life doesn’t stop changing after you sign a divorce agreement or get a Final Judgment for Paternity, nor do the lives of your children. A former spouse may remarry, a child’s extracurricular activities may no longer coordinate well with an existing parenting plan for time-sharing, or one parent’s salary may increase due to a new job or significant promotion. In these circumstances, a divorce agreement may need to be modified to accurately reflect any new developments and to meet the needs of the ever-changing family unit.

The Law Office of Erin Morse has assisted clients with the modification of divorce, support, and custody decrees. Let our experienced team assist you with an Orlando Modification. We can help you demonstrate why your divorce agreement needs to be modified in light of a substantial change in circumstances or challenge an effort to modify an existing agreement.

When can an order be modified?

Custody and support modifications have their own unique considerations and variables under Florida law. Typically the most common modifications are to the following orders:

  • Child Support;

  • Spousal Support or Alimony; and

  • Child Custody and Visitation

Orlando Child Support Modification

In Florida, if there is a substantial change in circumstances since entry of the final judgement, you can file a supplemental petition for modification. The court will review the needs for the change and whether the change may be temporary or should be final. The court has great leeway in granting or denying a supplemental modification. That is why it is important to enlist the services of an experienced Orlando Modification Attorney, who understands what is required to successfully advocate for or defend against a petition to modify an existing order.

Modifying Custody or the Parenting Plan

Florida requires a substantial and continuing change in circumstances for a child or a parent in order to modify custody. A substantial and continuing change is subjective, so it’s important to consult an experienced Orlando Family Law Attorney. Generally speaking, it is referred to as a change that is ongoing such that it is making the parenting plan/time no longer in the best interest of children.

There are numerous reasons why a modification may be needed. Whether you are petitioning for, or defending against a modification, our experienced team can help. Call us today and let our experience in Orlando Divorce Modification Team get to work for you, today!
