Your Dedicated Tavares Modifications Attorneys
Changing Your Final Judgment To Address Your Changing Circumstances
In the years following your divorce or the end of your family law case, it may be necessary to change part of your agreement or final judgment. This can occur when there are significant changes in your life, regarding your child, or in the circumstances of your child’s other parent or your ex-spouse.
At the Law Office of Robyn A. Hudson, P.A., we can help you through the process of obtaining or objecting to modifications. Our Lake County and Sumter County family law attorneys have extensive experience assisting clients in actions for modification of child support, alimony, child custody, and timesharing.
Situations that may cause a need for modification of your final judgment include:
- One parent has a change in employment or income.
- An ex-spouse remarries and alimony needs change.
- An ex-spouse loses a job and can no longer pay alimony.
- Circumstances at one parent’s house makes the current timesharing arrangement no longer appropriate for the child.
Modifying Your Child Custody, Child Visitation, and Support Judgment
In Florida family law cases, the Court will adopt a parenting plan that designates parental rights and responsibilities and establishes a timesharing schedule. These include orders specifying where the child lives, the time the child spends with each parent, and the parental sharing of important decisions regarding the child. If significant changes in circumstances occur, these changes will impact the viability of the present order and a modification may be needed in order to protect the best interests of the child.
In child support cases, changes in income or expenses relating to childcare are common reasons for a modification in the support amount. The time that the child spends with each parent is also a significant factor in assessing the amount of support that is required.
Certain types of alimony may also be modified if changes in circumstances occur. Typically, modifications are needed when there has been a change in the income of the paying or receiving spouse, or when the receiving spouse remarries or cohabits in a financially supportive relationship.
