What To Know About Post-Decree Modifications In Florida
Post-decree modifications are changes to the court orders that were put into place at the time your divorce or custody case was finalized, including:
- Child custody arrangements
- Child support obligations
Note that property distribution can’t be modified once it is final.
Guidance Through The Modification Process
The process for modification can be straightforward if both parties reach an agreement. The court typically approves such agreements. If they involve custody changes, the court must ensure that the new arrangement serves the best interests of the child or children involved.
In contested cases, however, it may be necessary to go to court again. You will need to prepare strong evidence and arguments and be ready for court hearings. You must also demonstrate that you meet the legal standards required for modifying existing orders.
Your Compass In Navigating Post-Decree Modifications
Whether your ex-spouse is on board with your proposed modification or not, you will need an experienced lawyer to serve as your compass and ensure that nothing goes wrong. I can guide you through every step, ensuring that your rights and interests are protected.
