Factors that Can Be Considered for Modification

Modification Orders

You’ve made it through one of your most difficult journeys and your divorce is finalized. You have a child custody, time sharing, parenting plan that you and your ex-spouse are abiding by. These plans outline how you will raise the children and what the financial obligations are. If you are in the middle of your journey and do not currently have a child custody, time sharing, or parenting plan, we recommend visiting those pages first.

We are often surprised that many of our clients aren’t aware that child custody and parenting plans can be modified. Once a court has issued a child custody or parenting plan they can be modified if there is a justified reason, such as a substantial change in circumstance, long distance most, child abuse, or a shift in the child’s needs due to health or age.

While modification orders can be common, they are still complex. There are many steps that need to be followed. Remember, you don’t need to go through this alone. Trust the experienced team of attorneys at Florida Women’s Law Group. We are committed to providing you a positive experience all while seamlessly handling the meticulous details.

Child Custody

You’ve made it through one of your most difficult journeys and your divorce is finalized. You have a child custody agreement issued by the court. We are often surprised that many of our clients aren’t aware that child custody agreements can be modified. Once a court has issued a child custody they can be modified if there is a justified reason, such as:

  • Substantial change in circumstance
  • Long distance move
  • Child abuse
  • Failure to follow the current child custody agreement
  • Parental health
  • Special Needs

Child custody agreements can be modified if the previous order doesn’t make sense anymore or it can no longer be carried out by the parents. Once you have a valid reason like those listed above, you will need to file a petition. When the judge reviews the petition, the first consideration is always the best interests of the children.
