Due to changes in circumstances since the entry of the Final Judgment in your case, a modification may become necessary. If your circumstances have significantly changed and you need a modification, you should speak with one of our Orlando divorce modification lawyers and family law attorneys to discuss your situation.
What can be Modified:
Parties may seek to modify alimony, child support, child custody, parental responsibility, time sharing or other conditions depending on the nature of the change in circumstance that has occurred since the entry of the Final Judgment or previous Order on the case.
Process for a Modification:
In some cases, the Parties may be in agreement as to the modification, and an agreement can be drafted defining the terms of the modification. In situations where the Parties are not in agreement, the party seeking the modification will need to file a Supplemental Petition for Modification addressing the conditions that need to be modified.
The Supplemental petition will need to provide the substantial changes in circumstances that have occurred since the entry of the Final Judgment or last Order on the case as well the modification that is sought and why said modification is justified. In most modification cases, the parties will be required to attend mediation before having a hearing on the matter. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement on the modification, the Court will hear the matter, and make a determination as to whether there have been substantial changes in circumstances and if the modification sought is warranted.
