A modification of a family law standing court order occurs when either both parties agree to modify the court order or when significant unforeseen circumstances currently exists that may warrant a modification of the current court order.
When the family law modification is an amicable agreement between both parties, the court will generally accept the modification and issue a new standing court order outlining the specifics of the approved modification.
When the family law modification is contested by either party things can be more difficult. The individual seeking the modification of the current standing court order must show cause due to significant changes financially, physical or mental ability to adhere to a standing court order, or other related family law issue.
The most common family law post judgment modification cases involve:
- Child Support Modifications: A parent may make a request to change the existing court ordered amount of child support owed when a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the support of the child can be effectively demonstrated to the court. However, any modification must still be in the best interest of the child or children.
- Child Custody or Visitation Modifications: A parent may make a request to change the existing child custody or visitation court orders is a significant change in circumstances exist to warrant a modification of the current child custody and visitation orders. However, any modification must still be in the best interest of the child or children.
- Spousal Support / Alimony Modifications: A spouse may make a request to change the existing court ordered amount of spousal support / alimony owed if they can demonstrate a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the spousal support / alimony which warrants the alteration of an alimony award.
- Relocation of a Minor Child Due to a Geographic Move: There are occasions when the parent whom minor children primarily resides with may wish to relocate to another area of Florida or out of State.
