Orlando Child Support Modifications

When there is a substantial and material change in circumstances that is permanent, it may be possible to have the Judge review and adjust financial responsibilities to reflect the changes in circumstances. Many times one party gets a raise in their income, or has a decrease in their income. They may have had their hours reduced or they may have been terminated. The costs of the health insurance that they are paying for the child(ren) may have gotten more expensive. The day care costs may now be less or more than they previously were at the time of the judgment. This may entitle the other party to an adjustment in child support. A substantial change may occur if there is a change in the child(ren)’s needs, or if either parties’ income is increased or decreased.


Orlando Alimony Modifications

When there is a substantial and material change in circumstances that is permanent and was unanticipated at the time of the final judgment, it may be possible to have the Judge review and adjust financial responsibilities. The adjustments would reflect the changes in circumstances by either reducing, or increasing the alimony. Did a party that was paying alimony obtain an increase in income? Did the party that was paying alimony have a decrease in income? Did the party that was paying alimony lose his/her job? Did the party that was paying alimony reach the age of retirement? Did the spouse that is receiving alimony enter into a supportive relationship? Did the spouse the spouse that is receiving alimony get an inheritance? Did the spouse that is receiving alimony obtain employment? This may entitle you to a modification of alimony. The moving party must show that the change in circumstances was not contemplated at the time of the entry of the order for alimony, and the change is sufficient, material, involuntary, and permanent in nature. You cannot just quit your job because you do not want to pay alimony.


Orlando Time-Sharing (Custody) & Co-Parenting Modifications

When there is a substantial and material change in circumstances that is permanent, and was unanticipated at the time of the final judgment, it may be possible to have the Judge review the case and make changes in custody, Co-Parenting and Time Sharing. Sometimes, one party can no longer utilize the time-sharing that they were awarded due to changes in their work schedule. Other times a spouse may need to move out of state due to a new job. A parent may have gotten arrested. A parent may be having alcohol or substance abuse problems. A parent may have remarried and their new spouse in not a proper person for the children to be around.
