After a settlement has been reached in a divorce, circumstances can change that require the modification of a divorce-related agreement. In cases involving child support, this can include:
In Florida, there are several reasons why a modification or termination of alimony may be approved by the court. Some of the most common reasons for a modification are:
Florida family law courts understand the demands of daily life, which is why child custody orders (parenting plans) can be modified by the court if there has been an unanticipated, substantial change in your family's circumstances. However, courts will only modify the parenting plan if the modification will be in the best interests of the child. Proving that the proposed change is both unexpected and in the best interests of the child may be difficult to do without the help of competent legal representation.
