Child Support Modification

In Florida, child support is always modifiable. The process involves filing a Petition for Modification of Child Support, proving a substantial change in circumstances since the last order—like a change in income.

Alimony Modification

Florida allows alimony modification under certain conditions. The process demands demonstrating a substantial change not initially considered in the original alimony order, such as income change, job loss, illness, or remarriage. Modification through the court system is intricate, emphasizing the need for a knowledgeable attorney.

Modifications FAQs

Yes, child support can always be modified in Florida, so long as certain factors exist and are alleged in the modification action. In order to modify child support, there must be a substantial change in circumstances since the original court order or agreement was entered, such as a change in income of one of the parents.

Alimony can be modified in amount and sometimes duration in certain circumstances depending on the type of alimony that was awarded. However, if a Marital Settlement Agreement was signed by the parties and it expressly states that alimony is non-modifiable, then alimony cannot be modified. There are certain factors that must be met in order to modify alimony such as a substantial change in income of one of the parties that was not contemplated at the time that the divorce was finalized.

In most cases, yes. To seek a modification, you typically need to file a petition with the court and provide evidence supporting your request for a modification. The court will then review the case and make a decision.
