Modifications in South Florida
Modifying a Divorce Agreement
After a settlement has been reached in a divorce, there can be changes
in circumstances that require the modification of a divorce-related agreement.
In cases involving
child support, this can include:
- A minor child reaching adulthood
- The loss of a job or reduction in income
There may be similar circumstances that prompt a change in alimony payments.
A modification petition must be submitted and approved by the court before
any changes to a divorce settlement can be made. A South Florida divorce
attorney can give you advice on how to pursue a modification, and provide
representation at your modification hearing. Because changes to a settlement
can have both short and long-term consequences, legal counsel regarding
the proposed modification can be extremely valuable.
