Can I Change a Final Judgement?

Post-Divorce Modification

When you dissolved your marriage, you negotiated or litigated a settlement based on your needs at that time. However, situations change, sometimes to the point of needing to modify a court-approved agreement. Failure to do so can cause undue hardship for you or your children or cause you to fall out of compliance with the existing order. If that happens, you face serious penalties that might include wage garnishment and time in jail.

It is best to take steps to modify an agreement as soon as the circumstances change. Our post-divorce modification attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience helping people address these matters. We can assist during mediation or litigate the matter if needed. Contact us today to discuss your next steps.

Reasons for Modification

You must experience a significant change in circumstances to qualify for a post-divorce modification. Some examples include: 

  • A significant change in income or expenses
  • Child or adult disability
  • Child neglect or abuse
  • Resolutions of issues such as substance abuse or anger management
  • Relocation

These are just some of the possibilities. If your situation has significantly changed, reach out to a post-divorce modification attorney today.

Modifying Child Support Orders

Either party can petition to modify child support if they’ve experienced a significant change in circumstances. For instance, if your child became disabled after the original agreement was created, you can request a modification to cover the changing needs. On the other hand, if you become disabled after the agreement and can no longer work, you can take action to reduce your obligation.

A post-divorce modification attorney at our firm can help you determine if the current support order is fair and reasonable. If not, we can guide you through the process of obtaining a modification.

Modifying Time-sharing Agreements

Florida courts strive to ensure children have access to both parents after a divorce. However, your existing time-sharing agreement might no longer fit due to changing circumstances. There are numerous reasons to request a modification, including relocation. You must seek approval from the court if you intend to move more than 50 miles from the address listed on your parenting agreement. Additionally, you will likely need to modify the time-sharing agreement to reflect the change.

Modifying your agreement would also be in the child’s best interests if the other parent is abusive or abusing substances. First, contact law enforcement if your child is in immediate danger. Then, seek counsel from a post-divorce modification attorney.

What if you had a substance abuse problem at the time of the divorce but have successfully completed treatment? In this instance, you might be able to increase your parenting time through a modification.

These are some of the numerous situations that create a need to modify your time-sharing agreement. Reach out to our firm to find out if your situation qualifies for a modification.

Modifying Alimony

If you pay or receive alimony, you might be eligible for a modification based on your current circumstances. After reviewing the evidence, the judge can increase, reduce, or terminate spousal support. For example, if you experienced a significant reduction in income, you might have trouble meeting your obligation. Then, the judge can agree to modify it to reduce your monthly payment. First, consult with a post-divorce modification attorney to determine if you can move forward with a modification.

Do You Have To Go To Court?

You might be putting off pursuing a modification because you do not want to go to court. Fortunately, you can undergo mediation instead of litigation. Our post-divorce modification attorneys are also certified mediators and can assist with the process. Mediation provides numerous advantages over litigation. For instance, it is more cost-effective, faster, and less adversarial. Also, you can reach a mutually satisfying agreement through mediation. If you are interested in this process, contact our firm today.
