Modification Cases in Florida Family Law

After a final judgment, unexpected issues can arise that can make the current judgment outdated. However, to modify a current family court order, the changes must be deemed substantial by the court.

Examples of issues that would warrant a modification include:

  • A parent’s loss or change in status related to employment, resulting in financial damage
  • Job obligations or other situations leading to a parent’s inability to maintain the current parenting schedule
  • Loss of other parental financial income or benefits
  • Parental disability
  • Illness on the part of a parent or a child, leading to increased medical expenses, inability to maintain the current parenting schedule, and more
  • Parental relocation for employment or remarriage purposes
  • Substance abuse on the part of a parent
  • Changing needs of a child due to aging

For instance, in Florida, if a divorced parent wishes to relocate more than 50 miles away from their current location, they must petition the court. Divorced parents who come to an agreement about the move may create a written agreement that still must be approved by the court. Where the parents disagree, a relocation hearing with the court will need to be scheduled for both sides to present their case.

Any changes you wish to make to a current final judgment must be approved by the court. Without court approval, it cannot be legally enforced.
