Modifications in Florida

Why a Post-Divorce Modification Is Right for You

Modifying a court order or bringing an enforcement action could become necessary after a divorce has been finalized. A modification may be required when there has been a “substantial change” in the circumstances of either a spouse or a child which make the original agreement unworkable or inequitable.

Substantial changes include:

  • Loss of job
  • Gaining new employment
  • Physical injury or illness
  • Economic downturn
  • Business failure
  • Relocating elsewhere in Florida or out of state
  • Change in dependent’s status
  • Remarriage
  • Death

On the other hand, enforcement issues may arise if one spouse continuously refuses to comply with the terms of the divorce agreement. The majority of these cases often involve the nonpayment of support, custody matters, visitation issues, and transfers of property.
